Slicing problems


Recommended Posts

Posted · Slicing problems


As you could read in the titile I have a problem of slicing a model a cuttlefish bone structure. I have changed my nozzle to 0.2 mm on my Ender 3 printer as well as in Cura 5.2.0. I have made this model (and other versions) in Solidworks with a 0.2, 0.25, 0.28 and 0.4 mm wall thickness. Once exported as an .stl and repaired on this website : ( https://formware.co/OnlineStlRepair ) , I wasn't able to slice it properly. I tried to make a small trial wall CAD model to find if I could slice such thin walls and indeed I was able to print them as well. From that I learned that Cura is able to slice walls of 0.25 mm with a 0.2mm nozzle profile. Anyway, I retried to slice my original model in Cura and it failed (viz photos). I tried it in PrusaSlicer and it worked.


Where did I made a mistake?
