Cura Wrong Slicing


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura Wrong Slicing

I've made this cookie cutters with rhinoceros 6 and  checked the stl file with Meshmixer and they seem fine. However, when slicing it on Cura 4.8 it creates inner squares as a wall which are not inteded to be there at all. Does anyone know if it is  a problem of the modelling, the mesh or the way I'm setting Cura? Does it happen oftenly when modelling with Rhinoceros for 3D printing? 

To the post i attach the stl file and the pictures of what I 'm reffering to 

Thank you very much for your help

    Cura shows the "Not Watertight" warning immediately upon opening the STL.  Cura is attempting to build two outer walls in that area.  Either a wall is flipped and faces the wrong way, or the model was created with the cross piece line-to-line with the peripheral piece.  The model is 4 pieces that almost connect together.  The picture below is the first layer with Initial Layer Horizontal Expansion set to -.10.  You can see numerous holes around the peripheral piece as well.  That's a bad model.  Cura's Mesh Tool is unable to fix it.



    Here is the same model after being repaired at Service.Netfabb.com.  This will print, but I would set Initial Layer Horizontal Expansion to 0.  There are still some errors at higher layers.  Bad model.




    Attached is the STL of the repaired model.
