Cura slices multiple horizontal surfaces into one surface

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura slices multiple horizontal surfaces into one surface

I'm pretty new at this and using Sketchup.  I've printed some very good models, but this one is giving me a migraine. This is a very simple dish drawing, no errors are showing in Sketchup. But I cannot get CURA to recognize the inset in the base of the dish.  I've redrawn it multiple times.  What am I missing??!?!

    a brief instruction:


    - check the normals (first learn about the SketchUp concept of "front" and "back" surfaces)

    - in SketchUp "dark gray" indicates the back side of a face

    - reverse all faces that are not displayed in white (context-click and select "Reverse Faces")
