Cura not slicing properly


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura not slicing properly

Hi I am fairly new to 3d printign and I am trying to print a 3d Model. It looks like this.


when i go into the layer view the model has a lot of errors.


I read that the actual outcome can variate from the model if the printer can not print the shape e.g. to small edges. But in my case, huge parts are missing. 
I set the default profile for fine with 0.1mm layer hight.  The model is about 200mm.

What am i doing wrong and what can i do to fix that problem.

    Is this your model?  Or did you download it from somewhere?


    If it's your model then you can fix it in your CAD software.  What CAD software did you use?


    If not, try the mesh tools as nallath suggests or you can use the netfabb repair service (free web service but you have to create an account).


    Also you can mess with the standard mesh options in cura.  I would try unchecking "union overlapping volumes" or checking "extensive stitching".  just toggle them all.

        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.
