Layer thicknesses are not equal.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Layer thicknesses are not equal.

I have tried to print this three times and I have checked the preview in cura ,  counted the number of layers it should print.  but it does not print it  even if it does it  in the simulation.

The other surfaces are correct. only last top surface that is wrong.

    You will need to supply something for the folks here to analyze.  Use "File | Save Project" and post the 3mf file here.  Without something to look at any advice would be guesswork.

    That's the Ultimaker Format Package file.  When loaded into Cura it looks correct with the top surface being 12 layers thick.  Without a project file there is no way to tell if there might be something else going on.

    When I slice it the preview shows 20 top layers everywhere.

    Open the Gcode or UFP file using Cura ( I think Cura will open a UFP but I'm not sure).  A separate program reads the file and Cura itself has no idea of how it was sliced.  So that preview of a gcode (or UFP) file will show you what should print.

     

    I do have a program to read Gcode Files into AutoCad and completely remove Cura from the loop.  It will not read a UFP file.  I don't think my utility will be of any use in this case because you probably printed from that UFP file.
