Posted (edited) · When slicing this model on Cura it cuts off the top.

I've been trying to slice this model at 0.12mm layer height and 15% infill, and every time I try and no matter what settings I try to adjust the final g-code seems to show the top cut off and not finished correctly.

 

If you have any suggestions that could help with this problem, I would be very thankful. 

Sincerely, Lucas H

    @Pureminer - With the model loaded and Cura ready to slice, use the "File | Save Project" command and then post that 3mf file here.  I have a feeling the model gets too narrow for your nozzle/line width.  A project file will show what's going on.

    Yep.  Those parts come to a knife edge and knife edges can't be printed.

    Cura (or any slicer) won't acknowledge areas of a model when the slice is narrower than your line width setting.  You can try dropping the line width to .35, or you can drop the nozzle size to a 0.2.  In either case you will get closer to the tip but you can't ever get there as there will always be an area that is narrower than your line width.

      • 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.
