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.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
