when loading my model in .STL looks fin, in layer I miss details

Posted (edited) · when loading my model in .STL looks fin, in layer I miss details



I've been making a model in Rhinoceros. Export it as .STL en import it in Cura. All fine. When I load the model it looks like one solid model. After slicing, clicking ' preview'  I miss a piece and as a result my model will be printed as 2 separate objects.

Never had this issue before.

    This is going to be a mesh problem rather than a cura problem. How did you model and export it?


    Some possible solutions:

    The meshtools plugin may be able to repair the mesh so it is a solid piece.

    Or you could use a tool like meshmixer to make it a single body.


    PS please don't report your post to get attention!!
