Missing sections in layers view mode

Recommended Posts

I've been getting this problem using Cura 14.01 with a number of STL files lately (image attached). This happens with models both of my own design and ones downloaded pre-made by others. I assume there are errors in the mesh, and perhaps this is a common problem, but I have no idea where to begin in fixing them (I'm using Blender primarily). I'm still new at this, but I haven't seen this problem until recently.

Any idea?

This model is so messed up it could take days to fix it. It appears to be filled with holes and hidden inner parts.

I guess I would try the 4 "fix horrible" checkboxes. That will only take you 20 minutes to try all 11 combinations (don't check A and B at the same time ever). They are in the expert settings. Set the layer thickness very thick to save you time when experimenting with which setting helps the slices.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
