Cura slice problem


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura slice problem

Hello, I have problems with simple stl object in cura.

Object looks fine, but when I slice it, it's not correct.


BUT, when I rotate it 90°, slice is correct..


Can someone help me what is wrong and how to solve it ?


Tested on cura 4.11, cura 8.x etc ...



Sending screens and stl object in attachment .. only screen "a5.jpg" turned 90° is correct ... a4.jpg, a3.jpg is wrong.


Thanks for help

    Hi @DEAWid this is because your model is not watertight. This message pops up when I opened your stl. 1962804611_Screenshot(247).png.eb1c7a9ba2516e2c3889efbeb677693e.png


    You could fix the model in a CAD program and that will probably solve your issue.
