Posted · Why did Cura split my STL at this layer?

Hello makers,


I am fairly new to 3d printing, I only got my Ender 3 V2 a few weeks ago, but I have the basics down. I tried printing this rag-doll of a guy I know I stitched together in Blender, but I found some terrible layer-shifts were programmed into the g-code. It even removed a few layers of hair. Not sure if the head is causing this or what. I do need this for a white elephant party soon so any input is appreciated. I scaled it to be 152.5mm tall if you try to slice it.


Thank you.

    It was because the head was put together so poorly in Blender. After fiddling with Mesh Mixer i was able to get rid of the slices.
