Cura slicer not cloning properly cloning items


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura slicer not cloning properly cloning items

For several releases of the Cura splicer I've noticed, and tried to remember and avoid using that feature as the clone feature is buggy.

Most of the time it appears to be fine and I get sucked into a false sense that things are working and then I get a bad clone.


The example below is 3 cloned items from the slicer software and the original.  From the picture you can see the lines through the piece on the three cloned items.  The layers are missing and the item is not usable.  Not the first time on my prints and surely not the last.

Ignore the support mess around the screws.  I just didn't clean them up yet.


I don't think that I need to say which of the four screws is the original.

    It's the first time I've heard about this. What makes you think it's the duplicate functionality?

    This looks more like a bed leveling issue. If your bed isn't entirely flat, the center of the bed (aka; the first item) will print best.
