Posted · Cura fills up holes, that should be empty

Hello everybody

I`m in 3d printing for only about month and had a few problems earlier, that i managed to fix by my self, but this time I gave up.

In many models, already had this problem, but small remake usually fixes it. But this time I can`t make it to leave it empty, Cura just fills up all the model. I`ll be thankful for any suggestions that could help me fix this.

    Did you create this model?  Is it from sketchup?  Sketchup specifies which sides of every surface is the "outside" or "inside" by the color.  White goes outside.  Gray goes inside.  Most people using sketchup ignore this but it confuses cura and ends up filling interrior spaces like this.  More info here:

    You show the model in 2 views (layer and solid), please check the model in the 3rd way: xray view.  If you see any red in xray view then that's the problem right there - it means you have extra walls or missing walls (the part is not manifold/solid).

        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.
