Gear teeth loose


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Gear teeth loose


I want to slice a gear with 0,4 nozzle, but what ever setting I change, the teeth apear to be seperate sliced.

If i could say cura how to slice, i would say "please make outer wall including teeth" But do not know how.

    The teeth aren't quite connected to the pulley body.  I tried the mesh fixer in Cura and it seemed to make a bit of a difference but it still wasn't forming the radius between the teeth.  I think the problem is with the model as well.  Instead of being part of the pulley, the teeth are just really close to the pulley.
