HELP Ultimaker Cura Software Prepare - Preview

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · HELP Ultimaker Cura Software Prepare - Preview



I just started using the Cura slicing software and imported a .stl object. 

In the prepare window the object looks as intended (needs to be hollow on the inside, see picture one)

However when I do a preview of the sliced object it is completely filled out. (see picture two)

What do I have to change?

Kind regards

    Your model is likely "non manifold". Read this article:



    The model (also?) has an issue where the normals are not consistent. Some are pointing outwards, some are pointing inwards. Your model needs to be repaired.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
