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):
