Cura: problem with windows in curved surface

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura: problem with windows in curved surface

I don't see the problem you're describing but on a closer inspection the center posts of the lower middle window don't seem to slice correctly.  This was with .4 nozzle and .4 line width.  It looks like there aren't any walls, just the infill.


If you do a "Save Project" and post the .3mf file here your settings will be included.  Hopefully they will tell the story.

    Laying it flat on it's back the problem showed up.


    Load the Mesh Tools Plugin.  Select the model and right click.  Select Mesh Tools and then "Fix Model Normals".  I think some of the surfaces were flipped around.

    I still don't like the way the dividers slice.  A .2 nozzle makes a world of difference.  If you have the model and software you could make the dividers and headers wider.


    This is with .4 nozzle



    This is .2 nozzle.
