Holes after slicing the model

Posted · Holes after slicing the model

Hello everybody,

I tried to slice and print this model in different way but those holes are always present after slicing it (I am using Cura 4.7.1).

I tried with different values of the infill, different support type (Normal, Tree), different X/Y distance but nothing changes.

Can you help me to fix it?

    Slicing with a nozzle that is thicker than the walls is always a tricky thing. If the difference is too much, even the print thin walls won't be able to compensate.


    I'd suggest printing this with a 0.4 nozzle, at which point the holes are no longer there.

    Unfortunately, I cannot use the 0.4 nozzle because the actual filament (is a particular type of marble) clogged it.

    Is there a way to fix the model or "some magic trick" in order to slice it directly on Cura?

    You could try to set the line width a bit lower.

    Alternatively you can also increase the thickness of the walls in a 3D modeling tool

    I have no solution, but after it is completed, could you make a few photos? Curious what that marble looks like...

    The magic trick for a clogged nozzle is to heat it up and burn the plastic out.  I use a propane torch to heat them up and then cleaning needles and a small brass wire brush to finish the job.  I have not had any issues cleaning them like.

      • 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
