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.

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.

 

Don
