Blender model not fully showing up in Cura

Posted · Blender model not fully showing up in Cura

 I'm not fully tech sob about all of this but I'm trying to make a led ceiling wedge to reflect light up towards the ceiling and not towards the floor just like this restaurant but my model does not seem to export fully into Cura why and how may ask to fix problem. PS I'm aware that I still need to fix the measurements for this model so it fits perfectly in place where I need it also I'm using 3M tape not screws to hold in place of locations. Please and thank u image.png.aad043b4a7960cd3849b59cb9f3e9cdf.pngLED COVER.stl

    What version of UltiMaker Cura are you using?
    In 5.1.0  it appears to load fine for me..

    It is REALLY tiny.. and the model appears to be broke..

    Looks like problems I experienced with Blender, by the dots, squares and color in the model displayed in Cura....

    Suggest making a 2D sketch and then extrude it. Makes a better model than using too many Bool Tools operations.

    Try export in Blender to OBJ file or STL file .....sometime help from little to almost good

    Help more provide different views of model in Blender to maybe understand the problem more...

    It broke when I export to (STL) and I don't how to fix and I'm far from capable messing with 2D sketch = I'm not good at. (OBJ)? I only know blender, unity and Cura

    In Blender Click on File, look down on list click on EXPORT and show all export formats STL and Wavefront(OBJ) are the best to use..... Try OBJ

    I don't know how to fix the model

     

    Basically... make it manifold! 🙂

    The model from the first post shows all kind of problems. It's not manifold, has overlapping geometries in many places, missing faces and not connected edges in other places. Such an object can't exist in the real world.

     

    for example:

    A proper model for 3D-printing is much harder to make in Blender than in a CAD-Software. But it's not impossible - here (for example) is a brief summary of some crucial things to consider:

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
