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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
