Can someone tell me why Cura keeps filling this hole?

Posted (edited) · Can someone tell me why Cura keeps filling this hole?

Now, obviously the most logical answer is internal geometry, but this model has none.

The larger hole is for a power bank, and the smaller for the cord.

I take great care in my models so when something goes wrong, it's quite upsetting. Especially after having spent so long making it.


Hell I even tried netfabb. That didn't work, either. I'll include that file as well. I don't think netfabb actually changed anything.

I just don't understand it. There shouldn't be any reason for that hole to get filled up. In blender, that hole was made by extruding a face downward and then beveling the inside edges. Internal geometry would be impossible with that method.


Normals are all correct too as far as I can tell

        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
