Weird shape deformations in Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Weird shape deformations in Cura

Hi All, 

Im Erik and im new here.. 

Over the last couple of days I think I have run into a strange problem with (what I believe has to do with Cura) induced deformations of shapes. Are more people experiencing this? In the image below, the left two parts are fusion 360 design and section, to the right two of the results. In Cura though, the object seems identical to the fusion design.

Any info or help as to whats causing this greatly appeciated!

    What does the layer view look like in Cura, does that match the shape of the model? I'm betting it does.


    This feels more like a printer issue, like an error with the z-axis such as having the wrong step setting for the z-axis. Knowing what type of printer you have will probably help.
