3D Model not showing all sides??


Recommended Posts

Posted · 3D Model not showing all sides??

Hello! im new to the forum. 

im having an issue.. 

ive made many designs in the past and sliced them on cura and never had any issues until today. im not sure if this is a settings or model issue. when i upload the model to cura everything looks good in the solid view, but then when i slice it and review the layer view there are whole sections missing, even when i add supports or remove. im going to add photos. any ideas?

    Usually when parts are missing, they are too thin to slice. You can design it thicker (> nozzle size) or try the settings "Print thin walls".

    Additionally for horizontal things, the layer height must be lower than the design.

    And I merged your double post here, because it is a bad idea to post the same thing twice and makes answers more difficult to read.

    ive always made models in this wall thickness. whats weird is when i rotate it the ones that were missing come back and other sides go away. its like all the 90 degree sides disappear for some reason. ill try what you said to see if it makes a difference.

    Without the model to examine, it is a guessing game. Can you share the model to be checked?

     

    Edit:

    And I just noticed that it is a sketchup model, which is notorious for creating issues with 3D printing.
