Cure removed tiny holes when slicing

Posted · Cure removed tiny holes when slicing

Hi all,


I've made a item with tiny holes (2 mm) and these holes are removed when I prepare to print wth Cura 4.5 


These are the item with the holes:                                               



And this is the result:



Any idea?

    Thanks for the model, there's the problem, if you install the Cura mesh tools plugin you will get this warning yourself...




    The model is broken, it needs fixing.

    Looking at the mesh, you can see that there are holes in the top and bottom but they are not joined with "tubes". As the message says, the model is not watertight.

    I've fixed the model and now pass the mesh tool, but still does not appear the holes. Attached versions with 1mm and 2mm holes.

    Forget it, works fine: I had enabled the "Remove All Holes" option 😓

      • 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
