Cura 13.10 Slicing Problem

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

I have a problem in Cura 13.10. I want to print my STL model, when importing into Cura it looks great. If I now choose to Layer View, it does strange things...

Already tried different STL and OBJ Exporter (I use Sketchup for designing), but nothing helps.

Any Ideas?

Make sure the .stl file is error free. You can load it into netfabb basic and check if there is a red cross at the bottom right. If it is, click on the red cross at the top in the menu bar. Then start the repair operation.

Also, which settings did you use in Cura? If for example your shell thickness is smaller then your nozzle diameter, Cura won't slice it.

If you want, attach the .stl file in question here so we can take a look.

It's in the expert menu. First enable full settings if you haven't already: Expert -> Switch to full settings... Then open the expert settings by, you guessed it, Expert -> Open expert settings... You'll find the checkboxes in the lower right of the dialog that pops up.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
