Posted · Slicing problem with cura

Hi guys. I am in need of some help with cura. When I wanted to print this faucet, the base is like a donut shaped and the middle is meant to be hollow. However, when I sliced it, the whole this becomes a solid. I tried poking the filled part but I think it is a solid and cannot be removed. This is not supports as I did not Rick the supports button. Pls help as soon as possible I want to continue printing well. Thanks for your help.

    Look at the mesh fixes section.  The only thing you might want selected is "union overlapping volumes".  The rest should be de-selected.  If "remove all holes" was selected it was the problem.

    I tried doing what you said but everything was already deselected except for Union overlapping volumes and remove empty first layers. I deselected “remove empty first layers” and it came out the same thing. What else should I check?

    I also tried messing around with the infill part and the infill ratio of that block did not change at all. 

    Like the infill ratio. Not the actual advanced settings.

    Go to "File | Save Project" and (if it isn't proprietary) post the 3mf file here.

    I don’t know how to do that. Is stl file fine? Or do you want the gcode?

    I think you did an export.  The only thing in the 3mf was the model and it sliced fine using my printer and settings.  I need the project file (also will be a 3mf) because it will contain your printer, the STL, and your settings.

     

    In Cura, load the STL and set up the slice.  Then, under the File menu select "Save Project" and create a 3mf file.  Post that file here.

    Turn off "Make overhangs printable".  It's doing just what it says - instead of an overhang you get part structure.

    It's in the Experimental section of the settings.  The tooltip should read "DO NOT USE".
