Cura won´t do the slopes right, even when keep disconnected faces enabled

Posted · Cura won´t do the slopes right, even when keep disconnected faces enabled

Hi evreyone!

I´ve a trouble when slicing my file, at first the solid model seems to be fine but once I prepare my g-code cura does my model wrong, I need the model with slopes and cura takes them as something that needs to be filled, I´ve tried experimental settings and other things but my problem persist. If anyone could help me sort my problem out I´d appreciate it, thanks.

    Are you using sketchup?  If so read this - sketchup doesn't have any requirement to create solids and it specifies which side of the wall is outside (white) versus inside (gray) but when using sketchup people ignore that.  Cura doesn't.  Much more info here:



    Also check your model in xray view (this screenshot above is layer view and normal view but there is a 3rd).  If you see any red in this area in xray view then that's probably the problem.


    Finally if it's not your model then you can probably try enabling or disabling "union overlapping volumes" and "extensive stitching" and other things in the "mesh fixes" category.


    Basically what I'm saying is there is a problem with your model that is confusing cura.  


    Oh - one other thing - you can try this - netfabb free repair service (you have to create a free account first):

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
