My model is not being rendered correctly anymore

Recommended Posts

Posted · My model is not being rendered correctly anymore

Hi everyone, I seem to be running into a strange problem. I am modeling some parts currently. I modeled the first one in, exported it and put it into Cura, it rendered perfectly. I exported it and printed it and it was perfect. No issues at all. Here is the part in blender and the final product:



I modeled the second part i need, and now it is being rendered all weird with in Cura. It looks perfectly fine in blender however. I took many different approaches to modeling it to try and solve the problem. It is still doing the same thing. Here is the new part I am having trouble with:



Here is what that part looks like in Cura: 



I started to think "Maybe it is the Cura software?" So I put back the original part that I modeled and printed at first that turned out perfect and now that one is being rendered weird as well. Here is what that original part looks like now in Cura:


I don't remember changing anything in Cura, but i may have by accident. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I tried removing and reading my printer. Still nothing. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening? Thank you,

    It seem's like something in your STL that cura doesn't like... Try installing the mesh fixer plugin.

    It will give you a message if there is a problem with your STL.


    If you want you can also share your STL here so someone else can try to open it and see if the same thing occurs.
