Posted · Cura 4.2.1, are filling holes ?!?!?

got some strange slicing with cura

(see photo gallery)

when I slice this project some holes are random filled by the height that I have defined to walls .

??? help please... 

note that if I rotate the model, other holes are filled???!! 

very strange

I expect the model has a problem. Please attach it to this thread. Thanks.

Thanks for the models. I was wrong, the models are OK. However, I can slice led_panel.stl and it looks OK. It must, instead, be a problem with the settings. Please save the project file and attach to this thread. Thanks.

Thanks for the project file. Hmm, very weird, It looks to me that those sections are being inverted, i.e. the hole is treated as solid and gets skin and the non-hole area which should be skin is empty (if you turn off the fill gaps between walls setting).

 

At this time, I can't say where the bug is. Possibly in the front end but it looks more likely to be in the slicer back end.

 

Interestingly, when I sliced the led_panel.stl using different settings there wasn't a problem so I will continue to investigate.

You are the best!,  meanwhile I am printing this model in repetier, with cura engine, there I do not have this issue.  When you got the bug we will hear about! advance thanks!

BTW, you can save yourself some time and filament by switching to gyroid infill at a much lower density than what you are currently using. It will still be stupidly strong. I also recommend enabling the optimise wall printing order setting.

LOL, I think the project that I send to you was 50% fill.. I never do that, I loaded the model and made slice with default values, I always use between 15% and 25%..

And yes, gyroid infill make difference, tanks for the tip, I have adjusted the line width to 0,39 and works fine for me! 

In future releases they should solve this problem... 

Best regards and thanks for all...

Indeed they should. Let's hope they treat it with the priority it deserves!
