Cura Slicer top line outside of walls?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura Slicer top line outside of walls?

I have problem that Cura put top line outside of walls which ruins the outer surface quality.
How to get rid of this without modifing model?
Seems to be slicing issue.
There is some engraved text where this happens and I can get rid of it if I change the model slightly by adding chamfer to that place.

    The engraved letters must come very close to the top of the model.

    What is the height of the model?

    What is the dimension from the bottom of the model to the top of the engraved area?

    What is your layer height and what is the initial layer height?

    If you could post the STL file that would be good.

    No, the encraved letters are not close to the top of model.
    Model height is ca 70mm and error spot is at 47mm.
    Engraved text depth is 0.2mm.
    Print layer hights are 0.2mm.
    Unfortunately I cannot upload stl file.
    Anyway I solved the problem by modifing the model but it seems to be slicing error by Cura.

    It's good that you sorted it out.  I do a lot of lettering both inset and raised.  Sometimes there are issues but it has always come down to something I did, or something in the model.  I've found that Cura doesn't tend to make things up and that if I stare at the model long enough I'll have an "Aahhh, that's why" moment.

    Nice job on the font by the way.  It's not easy sticking them into curved surfaces.
