Holes after slicing the model


Recommended Posts

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?

    Are you really using a 1.0 nozzle?  When sliced with a .4 nozzle and .4 line width there doesn't seem to be a problem.

    Yes

    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.
