Cura 4.9: Always fills in models

Posted · Cura 4.9: Always fills in models

Hello,

 

Cura 4.9's slicer is filling in any holes or other open space inside my models. I haven't changed any settings that I can tell, and this is with a completely new project, not one created in 4.8 and opened in 4.9. I'm attaching a 3mf project, so it's not specific to this one model -- I've tried a couple of different .stl's and the same thing happens.

 

This is a model of a replacement knob for an Ender 3 control panel. If you slice and go to Preview you'll see how it has filled in the interior with yellow, and the hole for the dial control is nowhere to be seen. Is this a bug or some new default setting I'm not aware of?

 

Thanks,

Scott K.

    Well, I definitely didn't do that on purpose -- I didn't even know that setting existed!

     

    Could 4.9 be turning this on in reaction to some other setting? I see the "setting has a different value than what is set in the profile" indicator.

     

    In any event, thanks for the easy fix. I'll look out for this in future projects.

    No, not really.

    That means that either you changed the setting value from its default. Or it could be your cat. But more likely it was you, while scrolling through the settings you may have inadvertently clicked on the checkbox.

    You enabled the "Remove all holes" setting, so Cura is doing just that.

    Thank you! I also made this mistake and couldn’t find the problem.

      • 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
