Bits missing from Fusion 360 to Cura slice

Hi

not sure if this is the right place to ask this question but...

Ive drawn an object in Fusion 360, sent it to Cura 4.0 (they dont talk like 3.2.1 used to)

The slice resulted in some important features of the build missing altogether???

How does that happen?

Fusion shows the object as I drew it, the sliced version has missing parts

Cgeers

    Hi Smithy

    Yes, the picture shown is what I export to Cura

    I redrew the item from scratch and i managed to export properly

    I think????? the problem was to do with the extrude function and using a 'new body' instead of using the 'join' function???

    Its weird because Fusion 360 made the mesh ready for slicing showing the components!

    Thanks for your interest

    Then it was exactly the problem I was talking about. When you model something in Fusion you get often a new body instead of joining the existing one. It is not a problem, but you should be aware of it and that the export function only exports one body (you can also not select more than one). So when you have more than body in Fusion, you should combine it before sending it to Cura.

     

    You find the combine function in the Modify menu in Fusion.

      • 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.
