Posted · thin wall Jobs display and print as solid objects

Out of the blue most but not all vases, cups and other hollow objects are showing up in Cura as solid and when sliced print as a solid object. I tried completely removing cura along with profiles and reinstall but no joy. This is happening on my other computer also.

    My Cura has magically reset some settings before when trying to print  pots, vases etc... If you haven't already you can double check these settings: Top Layers (should be set to 0); Infill (set to 0); Print thin walls.

    @super811 - what cad software are you using?

     

    First look at the settings in mesh fixes.

     

    Secondly, if this is not your model, it's actually normal to design a solid vase like this and expect people to fool with the settings.  You probably want to check the "spiralize" checkbox which is designed to turn solid vases into vases with sides and a bottom but no top.  Read the comments about spiralize (hover over the feature for a popup that describes what it does).

     

    Spiralize is meant for vases and cups mostly.

    Problem is I have printed this object several times and it was fine now all of a sudden it wants to display and print as a solid object. Other files that display correctly also print correctly.

    Is this object on thingiverse?  did you design it?  Can you post an STL file somewhere?  Or even better, do a "file" "save" from cura and post the 3mf project file somewhere.

     

    It looks solid in "prepare" mode so I'm pretty sure it will be solid in "preview" mode as well unless you tweak settings in cura (for example enable spiralize but there are other ways as well).

      • 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
