Cura adding/messing with layers after slicing


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura adding/messing with layers after slicing

I have designed a couple of components with Rhino 6 software. I uploaded it to Cura 4.0.0 and everything works fine until I want to check the slicing.


For some reason silicing messes with the layers in the following ways:

  • The first layer of one the components is totally missing, as if it started directly in layer 2 (image "layer 1" and "layer 2").
  • On the same component, when the print should stop because the part is finished (around layer 74, like in image, although not exactly sure on this), it instead continues and prints horizontal layers over zones that should not have anything (image "finished print").


I also add a video of the slicing and preview of the file in case it helps.


Thank you for your time.

    Hello @litwi, it sounds like there are problems with the model. Could you either attach the model file to this thread. Alternatively, install the mesh tools plugin from the cura marketplace and check the model to see that it is actually printable. Thanks.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
