Need Help With A VERY HUGE Model "life size"

Recommended Posts

Posted · Need Help With A VERY HUGE Model "life size"

Hello there guys im here trying to finish this mannequin i started printing on my MakerBot Rep 2 and i said okay this is going to take way longer and allot more post processing after printing so maybe ill get a bigger printer and issue solved.  Well here i am using Cura for the first time and im not happy with my results, for some reason CURA keep slicing my file but with a specific corner that doesnt want to print and the support is another issue where the nozzle keeps trying to ignore that fact that there is more room on the printers bed but refuses to use its open area so instead it simply prints over the same area over and over again as shown on fig2

 

another thing is the model it self, initially the model is under 10MB but after i bring it into NETFAB to run a hollowing operation it grows enormously to a whopping 300MB and i dont understand how if the model is loosing volume by becoming hollow you know?!  and this is where CURA has issue i think in rendering the right sliced g code.
