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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
