Posted · A big blob of person - so frustrated

Hi,

I'm getting so frustrated. I'm new so I have no idea what I did wrong?  The below picture is suppose to be a human form with supports, but instead it's a solid mass.  I adjusted something incorrectly but I cant figure it out at all.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thank you very much!

    With just a picture, we cannot help. So you have to give us more details or even better, upload the Cura project here.

    I guess that your model has not enough cooling. Print this slow, as cool as possible, and print a dummy model next to the real model. Try a dummy cube, or an inverse of the model. So that the hot nozzle has to spend some time away from the real model, and the real model gets time to cool. But as said, it is a guess.

     

     

    See this conceptual example:

    Edit: it looks like this effect with and without dummy cooling tower:

    I'm home now and I want to thank you all for the responses.  I've attached the project file.
