I created with Freecad a knob in which I have to insert a nut. I subtracted the nut from knob to get the empty space. Cura doesn't see the empty space and slicing the nut is there. Note that with other slicers this does not happen to me. There is a solution? thank you so much!

    I don't have your settings in the 3mf file for whatever reason, but I can slice your model without problem with default settings.

    I guess you plan to pause the print at the height of the nut to insert it, right?

    The issue is what is the setting of cura that creates the problem?

    Can you post a picture of it?

    You need to turn off supports. That’s what the light blue indicates.

     

    As for pausing, I’ve done the same thing but for some reason it only works when specifying the height by layer number.
