Posted · Parts of model get greyed out in preview when scaling up the model

Hi forum,

 

I made a model the other day in blender, that I'm now trying to print. But when I scale up the model (by I think: 1600%), and slice the model, parts of the nose get's greyed out when going into layer view. I use pretty much default CR-10mini settings (only added raft and support). Tried doing different things found in other topics here, but they don't seem to work.

 

Kind regards,

Nicolas Magnussen

    Hi and welcome!

    I guess there is a problem with your model, maybe it is not solid and the hollow nose part has too thin walls? Or the model is not watertight?

     

    Check you model again, maybe use some STL repair services, like netfabb online or the 3D Builder can also repair STL files.

      • 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.
