Walls do not follow outline

Recommended Posts

Posted · Walls do not follow outline

Hi there,

 

I have attached my Cura project. I use Cura 4.6.1 with an Ender 3. With this model I have the problem, that the Inner Wall does not follow the outline and prints some lines randomly before starting to follow the outline. Is there a settings with which I change that? Here the picture of that part of the gcode:

The problem is that the model is not manifold (aka watertight). You need to fix the model for Cura to be able to have a reasonable chance of slicing it satisfactorily.

Thanks for the answer. After I solved that problem, it printed perfectly. I still have one additional question. How did you get the message in your screenshot? Did you use Cura for it?
