I've had a problem slicing this helmet and i cant find any solutions any advice?

 

Note* 

-print thin walls is on and off in provided screenshots 

-used blender to create this model

-i did scale this model up a lot from original(thinking this might be the problem)

    It is rather hard to see what your problem is, especially since the forum scaled down your images. Can you please describe (better) what your problem slicing is, and possibly highlight the problem in your screenshot?

    thank you for the response, so i made a model of a helmet in blender and exported it as an stl which looked perfectly fine in pre slice... then sliced it and the middle half of the model is gone (seen in the screenshots below) and what i thought it might be is the scale (i scaled the model in cura up 20000% ), but that wasnt the case ,I've sense made the model bigger in blender and re sliced which resulted in getting the same issue.

     

    Something to note, the model with thin walls enabled (which is a slicing setting i saw people using and it would fix the problem they had with getting rid of some parts of their model, also seen with and without setting on in screenshots below ) wouldn't do anything to sliced model.

     

    if these screenshots still don't make any sense or my problem still doesn't make any sense please let me know

    The forum downscales your images, so it is still hard to see what is going on exactly. I think your model is not "manifold". Here's a good article about what that means (and some hints what you can do about it):

    https://github.com/Ghostkeeper/SettingsGuide/blob/master/resources/articles/troubleshooting/missing_parts.md

     

    The best way to diagnose issue like this is if you save a project (File -> Save project), upload that project somewhere and post a link here. Then we can see the actual model and the settings you use.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
