When trying to print an STL File found online, chunks are continuously missing when slicing is attempted

Posted · When trying to print an STL File found online, chunks are continuously missing when slicing is attempted

Hello! I am looking to print out the following file laying on its side as a piece to decorate my graduation cap, but whenever I go to print it, it is consistently missing chunks of it. When standing vertical, it misses pieces of the bell, when on its side the entire bell is gone. Is there anything I am missing, any way I can repair the file, anything like that? All help is greatly appreciated!

    Well this would do it...
    -> Analyzed your file:
    --> 2041 Naked edges (?)
    --> 35 Planar holes (?)
    --> 91 Non-planar holes (?)
    --> 1 Non-manifold edges (?)
    --> 51 Inverted faces (?)
    --> 0 Degenerate faces (?)
    --> 2 Duplicate faces (?)
    --> 0 Disjoint shells (?)

    -> Vertex count changed from 39462 to 48011 (+8549)
    -> Triangle count changed from 76715 to 97056 (+20341)

    The web service was able to repair it.  Whether it's right or not I don't know.  Your model is on the right.  The pink areas indicate errors.

    You won't print this with a .4 nozzle at 100% scale.  You would need to go to 200% to have a chance and the line width would need to be .35.  A .2 nozzle would be a better choice at full scale.  Some of the supports would be difficult to remove without trashing the print.

    Okay thankyou so much! Interior didn't matter as much, as I was just using it for the shape! I wasnt sure how to go about repairing or anything like this so this helps a lot!!!

    MS 3D Builder was able to repair it also.

    Since it's for a good cause here is your graduation present.  The support blocker is configured as a cutting mesh to keep all the little things that don't print well from printing at all.  I think it would look pretty good in Silky Gold filament.

      • 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
