Hi everyone,

merry Christmas to all firstly !! 1f642.png🙂

Have you ever experienced this kind of problem with Cura? 

The first photo is actually how should be the model after printing, the second one is how cura slices the part but its' wrong!! It makes the opposite with the logo at the centre... do you know why?

    Did you make this model in sketchup - then the answer has to do with "normals" or saying which side of a surface is "inside" and which side is "outside".  Skim this short article:  https://i.materialise.com/blog/3d-printing-with-sketchup/


    If it's not made with sketchup you could try repairing the model with netfabb STL repair service.  You have to create an account but it's a free web service.


    You could also mess around with the "mesh" repair features in cura.  There are about 8 of them.  You might actually want to turn them all off.


    Also look at this model in xray mode (preview mode in top center of cura, xray mode in option to the top left area).


    netfabb is your simpleast, fastest option but if this is a sketchup model it is incredibly easy to right click all the gray surfaces and "reverse faces".

      • 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
