Cura not rendering correctly box with cut out region on bottom layer

Posted · Cura not rendering correctly box with cut out region on bottom layer

Hi.  I'm new to 3D printing.   I'm creating a custom box to hold my modem and routers.   The bottom layer of the box has a cut out region.

When I slice it and view layers in preview mode, for some reason Cura is rendering the bottom layer of the box as if there was no cut out region.

Using Cura 4.8.  No raft or brim.  Happens with our without support.

Am I doing something wrong?

See screenshots below, as well as the attached STL file.

Thanks for any help!

    Your model is "non-manifold", causing Cura to loose track of what is inside and outisde. Specifically, the way you made the 4 little screw-holes on the bottom is causing problems. There seem to be no cylindrical walls connecting the top and the bottom of those cutouts.

        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.
