Hollow object filled with support


Recommended Posts

Warning I am Kinda new to Cura, so I won't know the real advanced stuff anyway.

My model should be hollow like a cup but Cura fills it with some sort of what looks like support material. Any ideas why it's doing this and how to change it.

    Without the model or settings that you changed, it's all speculation from my side.

    But things that generally cause this: The model is non manifold or "Make overhangs printable" is enabled.

    Or the infamous "Remove all Holes" is checked.  The dropdown list next to the Search Settings box is Settings Visibility.  Set it to "All".  Go to Mesh Fixes and un-check all the boxes.
