Shadow effecting print

Recommended Posts

Posted · Shadow effecting print

I've never experienced this before where Cura wont print a part that will fit on the build plate due to the shadow it casts, for some reason Cura is thinking the shadow needs printing but doest show a sign of the shadow once i can get it to slice. Any advice on whats happening here would be welcome.


Many thanks

    I removed all of the build plate adhesion but this still didnt change the fact Cura wouldnt print it, i'll have a look through the article when home from work. Thanks
