No infill generated but infill needed


Recommended Posts

Posted · No infill generated but infill needed

I have an .stl that was given to me by a 3rd party.  No matter what I do, I can not get Cura to generate infill.  This question has been asked before, but I think I have followed the advice found there.  I have tried multiple ways to make the object solid in both Meshmaker and Freecad.  There are online tutorials about doing this that I have followed.  No matter what I do, no infill is ever generated.  I know the object as it is in the attachment is too large for my print bed.  I shrink the x-axis to 63.5mm in Cura.  The attached file has been "made solid" in both Meshmaker and Freecad.  The original is 15MB, so I thought it best no to try to attach it.


I would appreciate any advice.

    I seem to have solved my own problem .

    I simply wasn't viewing properly in Cura.  I did need to go through the process of making the original .stl solid, but in my frustration, I wasn't seeing what Cura was presenting me afterwards.
