Slicing fail

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have another weird problem with a model here. Cura 13.06.5 (Mac). I sliced a part for this model:

There are four guns for the mech and somehow Cura decided that two of them should have a broken and displaced barrel:

Of course I noticed it after a 6 hours print :/

Who broke my gun?

Gcode:

The other two guns came out alright. I wonder what caused it for the other two. Before adding the model to Cura I opened it in netfabb Basic and repaired it.

Look at it in xray view in cura. If you see *any* red then technically the model violates standards for what is okay in an stl file.

Having said that, you will probably want to fix this using the "fix horrible" settings. Or seriously consider using an older version of cura that could handle "bad" stl files better: 13.04.

Ok, I need to remind myself to properly check every detail in Cura before I start long prints. I usually look at it in the layers view mode. But it is hard to spot errors that way. I will remember to inspect it in x-raw view mode.

@daid: Maybe you could consider another mode like the Repetierhost gcode view.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
