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.
