Strange case with thin model parts - pls help

Posted · Strange case with thin model parts - pls help

Hey!

I'm trying to print a warship turret with quite thin guns, I don't understand why if I put the model in a smaller scale the guns show up (in the preview section) and in my desired scale they won't show up (see the picture below). Can I solve this problem?

And by the way if I print it in vertical the guns show up, but I don't want to print it in vertical for practical purposes.

This model of the turret has the guns empty inside, I think that's the problem... but I have no way to solve it 😞

Thanks

    The polka-dot areas indicate problems that Cura detected with the model.  If you have the Mesh Tools loaded from the MarketPlace the tools will be available when you select the part and right click.  There are a couple of pretty decent model repair tools in the menu.  If the model needs more extensive repair you would need to go to different software or use an on-line service like https://formware.co/OnlineStlRepair.  Some modeling errors confuse Cura because the software can't tell if it's looking at the inside of the model or the outside.
