Infill extends thru walls into hole.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Infill extends thru walls into hole.


I made this model with holes in the base and when cura slices it the small holes are fine but in the larger one the infill extends thru the last layer before the top layers. I have searched but have not found anything on this yet. 

These are the layers up until the last layer and everything is ok.




This is the next layer and the infill goes right thru the walls.




After that the top layers start.





It has done this a couple other times and I cannot figure out what is causing it.

Can anyone help me?

Thank you

    Well I guess I'll answer my own question. After continued playing around and no better results, I tried subtracting .01 mm from the thickness of the base. There is still the same amount of layers but the infill doesn't cross the hole anymore with the same settings. It must have something to do with a fraction of a layer height making cura do something wrong during slicing.

    Here are the two models with the second one with .01mm removed.




    Same number of total layers.

    I think there is something wrong  with the mesh structure of this model. It looks like there are extra (double?) walls around the holes or something similar.
    It's probably not a single solid body (like it is supposed to be). If the model has errors the results are simply unpredictable.

    As a first step i would take a look at the "x-ray-view" in Cura and check for any unwanted geometry or red marked areas.

      • 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
