Not Slicing Pockets

Just startd happening,  Cura will no longer slice a pocket.  The STL Files exported from FreeCad to Cura have been working fine so perhaps a setting was changed?

 

Thanks

    I should add to the above post, The model created in FreeCad shows the pocket.  When exported to Cura, the square box shows with no pocket.  This has been working fine.  To test I can draw a simple box, extrude the box a few mm, then draw  a smaller square on the larger box and pocket that square.  Simple!  I export it to Cura and the pocket does not show.  Just shows the 4mm box?

    All of my previous stl export files with pockets that have already been printed by Cura no longer show any pockets.

    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 choose "check mesh".

     

    Possibly try "fix normals" which tells cura which side of every wall is solid and which side is air.

     

    Please share your project file: go to menu "file" "save...".  The resulting file contains not only your STL but the scaling, positioning.  Also it has your machine (printer) settings, your material settings, your profile used, and settings that you overrode.  Please post that here.

      • 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.
