Hey guys, 

 

I've tried to print a lid for a box. But Cura is always filling out the empty space under the lid with infill. In Addition Cura sets a bottom layer.

All the boxes under Mesh-fixing are not enabled (I've read these tipps in another forum). 

Furthermore the .stl-file has no errors according to the mesh-fixer Add-on in Cura and Meshmixer.

 

I hope that you can help me. 

The .stl-file and the .3mf file are attached.

 

Best regards

 

Maik

    Go down to the Experimental settings and turn off "Make Overhangs Printable".

    If it isn't visible then select "Custom" settings and then, to the right of the Settings Search box is an icon with three lines on it.  Click on it and set the visibility to "All".

    Hey...I got one right!!

     

    That setting and Remove all Holes are specialty settings.  They aren't for everyday use but when you need them they come in very handy.
