Disconnected (missing) layers


Recommended Posts

Posted · Disconnected (missing) layers



I have problem with some missing layers. When i Slice my slt and model have level middle of object, slicer drops one or two layers. This happens if model have holes and when model have straight levels. Holes drop layers at bottom tangent. Here is two pics from sliced objects.


Problem was "solved" at hole case by setting adaptive layer height on, but even then there was left weak interface at the bottom of hole.

    This doesn't look right at all... 😲

    A solid (watertight) model is needed for 3D-printing.

    This one consists of 370 separate shells that are not connected to each other:




    Similar issues for the other one:





    There are online tutorials for many modelling software products that explain how to design proper models for 3D-printing.

    Which program did you used to create these?

    Oh my god! I use Freecad and i Exported models by selecting everything with box selection... I followed generall tutorials, but have to miss some step to make model as whole... Thanx I examine this and try figure this out!

    That cracked the case! I made union form whole object before I exported STL file..


    Thousands of thax!

      • 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
