[SOLVED] Losing detail after slicing


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · [SOLVED] Losing detail after slicing

Hello, I am trying to print a model I found on Sketchfab, which I posed and fixed up to be able to print.
I have ironed out almost every problem, except for this last one.

forum1.thumb.png.d98d37f2b2c199b49a787de6a5fd38be.png

At this part of the model, is a very sharp edge. (Blender screenshot) This edge was marked as sharp in blender, but I unmarked it, hoping to fix the issue.

After importing into Cura the model looks fine. (I don't think the non-manifold part has anything to do with this issue)

But after slicing, almost the whole edge disappears. I have no idea why it would do this.

This is the last problem I have to iron out before I can print, so any help would be appreciated.

The project file is attached.

    It is nearly infinitely thin there.  This image is with a .15 nozzle at .1 line width.  They still don't connect.  You need to add some thickness there.

    Ah I see, I'll see what I can do.

     

    Thank you!
