Cura missing surface in walls too close

Posted · Cura missing surface in walls too close

I'm slicing this model and on layers 23 and up (using standard 0.2mm layers) you will see that the the skin on the bottom of the spool holder is not printed. I believe it's because they are too close and Cura just skipped the skin.

How can I fix this?

    Hey @koiker,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Forum 🚀 


    That's an interesting STL! It seems to be 2 meshes in one. 
    If you print it like this, you will have a hoovering layer and I believe your printjob will likely fail. 😮
    Do you see that the brim is not applied everywhere?


    I used the Meshtools Plugin to split the STL in two meshes. 
    You can get it here: https://marketplace.ultimaker.com/app/cura/plugins/fieldofview/MeshTools

    By splitting it you can print it as it's intended two models and it looks like this

    Was that what you are looking for?
