Cura 4.0 - Hollow shoulders if 100% scale


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura 4.0 - Hollow shoulders if 100% scale



I'm using the official Cura 4.0 trying to print a model (attached).


When I try to slice it everything goes fine except the shoulders - they appear hollow without material in them (see attached picture). However if I rescale the model to 50% then the shoulders are fine and well sliced. 


Why is this happening? Is there a setting I should turn on to fix it? This also happened in Cura 3.6

    Thanks a lot for the reply @smartavionics! I checked the X-ray view and found the issue, will report it to the original author of the model!

    By the way, is this "Mesh Tools" a plugin I can add to Cura, or something I should activate? It looks very useful!
