Problems with Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Problems with Cura

I'm having problems with Cura not wanting to generate the lower part of the slopes in this model and I'm not sure how to fix this issue.


I can print it how it is with just the support material as the slopes don't matter that much but I would like to know where I've gone wrong.

    Hi @JOMS,


    There is nothing wrong with your model.


    However, to be able to help you, you must save your model as a "Project" file and attach the file in here.


    This will show the settings you're using -then someone might be able to help you.

    The Cura X-Ray view shows problems at the ends of the ridges.  Maybe they don't go all the way to the wall and their ends are open???



    I used Mesh Mixer to repair it as it was a bit beyond the Cura Mesh Tools plugin.  MS 3D Builder is pretty good as well.

    The repaired model is on the right.



    And it's obvious that @Torgeir took typing in school as he is way faster than me.

    Thanks for the help it was greatly appreciated. :)

    The problem was that I hadn't trimmed inside the slopes where they touch that back face. The faces highlighted red in the image @GregValiant posted.
