cube without top gets a top face added without my input.

Posted · cube without top gets a top face added without my input.



I made a plain in blender i added mods to it to make a box shape object,  when i bring it to the software i can see the shape has no upper face, i slice it and on the preview it shows a top face being made, how do i stop it?, all the modifiers on blender have been applied, there are only real faces to print., why does it add a top face, the bottom face is at the bottom, there should be nothing to print except the walls after the bottom is printed, yet it adds one out its own imagination.

    It sounds like you didn't create a solid in blender.  Blender lets you create infinitely thin walls - which are not printable (well they are printable as infinitely thin means nothing is there).


    You need to specify the width of your walls in blender  by creating more surfaces.


    Alternatively you can set infill% to zero and top thickness also to zero since you are just printing a simple cube.


    Maybe you should show what the part looks like in blender or in preview mode to verify what I'm saying. There are other possibilities.

        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.
