cura slicing make curved bottom flat


Recommended Posts

Posted · cura slicing make curved bottom flat


I am trying to print this 3d vaulted arch model in cura but as soon as I slice the model the curvy bottom part  of my model become flat. I tried to load the same model into prusa slicer and it turns out to be fine. However, I want to print this model with my ultimaker. So what could be the cause of this?

I have attached some screenshot and the cura file below.

    There are extraneous faces in your mesh, see the (small) red parts in X-Ray view:


    (I am using Sidebar GUI; if you don't use that plugin, then X-Ray view is hidden in the "PREVIEW" tab)


    Under Mesh Fixes, you have "Remove All Holes" enabled. The model seems to slice well without that setting enabled.
