Strange Infill generated outside Model Issue

Posted · Strange Infill generated outside Model Issue

Hey Guys, I have been using cura for more than 3 years now and recently ran into a really strange behavior after slicing one of my model. Infills are generated outside the model and also at specific layers in mid air. 

 

I am using the latest Cura version of 4.8 and I have sliced this exact same model on older versions without any issues. What makes it weirder is that the locations of these floating infills randomly shifts as I tweak the slicer settings such as infill%, infill pattern, line width, Number of wall lines etc.

 

I even tried slicing with the Cura preset profiles and the same issue is still observed and it only happens to this particular model. I sliced the model in PrusaSlicer and do not see any issues so that leads me to wonder if it is an issue with Cura.

 

Does anyone one else experience similar issues?

    Look at all your "mesh fixes" settings.  Make sure they are all disabled.

     

    Alternatively your model may have holes.  It might not be manifold.

    Cura has an amazing plugin to test your model to see if something is wrong with it and can repair a very few of the many potential problems:
    In the upper right corner of Cura click "marketplace" and make sure you are on the "plugins" tab and install "Mesh Tools".  Then restart Cura.  Now right click on your model, choose "mesh tools" and first choose
    "check mesh", then "fix model normals" and "fix simple holes" to see if that helps.  Cura doesn't fix most issues so...

      • 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
