    Hello @DonaldNaegele, without seeing all of the settings you used it's difficult to tell exactly what's wrong. For starters, I would check that you are using no-skin combing mode and set the max comb distance with no retract to something like 10 or 20. There's heaps of other settings that could make a difference. If you provided the project file, that would be a help.

    Do a File -> Save and just attach the .3mf file to this thread.

    Thanks for the file. I think a big part of the problem is that the model is not good. It appears to be made from a number of meshes and it should be a single mesh.

    You can see in the image that the mesh tools plugin is unhappy (let's face it, a benchy that isn't watertight is about as much use as a chocolate frying pan!)

     

    Looking at the layer view behind you can see that something is screwy with the door frame.

     

    So, first step, fix the model.

    The mesh tools are a plugin you install from the Cura marketplace.

     

    How you fix the model is beyond my knowledge, sorry.

     

    Most likely you will need to fix it before loading it into Cura.

    Plugin and profile installation

    To install a plugin or profile from the Marketplace, take the following steps:

    • Open the Marketplace in Ultimaker Cura by navigating to Marketplace > Marketplace.
    • Select the plugin or profile you want to install and click Install.
    • Quit and restart Ultimaker Cura to enable the plugin or profile.

     

    I don't have these options in my Cura for Mac.

    Ok I ran all the mesh tools. Should I just try and reprint?

      • 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
