Vertical lines in Cura

Recommended Posts

Posted · Vertical lines in Cura

Hi folks. I'm a new member here (also newbie to 3D printing) and I'm facing a problem I don't know how to properly google it.


So, I'm trying to print a model and I noticed the printer was jerking and putting extra filament (see the attached photo).


When I went to Cura, I noticed it is actually instructing my printer to do that, is there a way to merge these parts?


I looked into the Merged Meshes Overlap, but no matter the value, it didn't change this instruction.


All in all:

1. How can I call this thing to properly google it?

2. How can I configure Cura to avoid doing it?

So that's a problem with your model.  Did you create the model?  You need to find an expert in the particular CAD software you used.  That's not really a Cura issue.


You could try netfabb free repair service (you have to create an account but it's free) or you might be able to fix it in meshmixer.  But ideally you want to fix the model.
