Posted · The model is not slicing even though it is within the available printing space

hello, so i want to print this airfoil for a turbine and i am printing it into two pieces because the blade is too big for my printing space and so i divided into male and female slots. i made the model in solidworks and converted into stl. so i provided both stl files for the female and male slots and their .3mf files. for the male slot, it can be printed and sliced but i cant seem to get a reason why the female slot cannot be printed. can you check my files whether there is something that i need to do?? im not entirely sure since 3d printing is relatively new to me

s1223 blade half female slot.STL s1223 blade half male slot.STL CCR20_s1223 blade half female slot.3mf CCR20_s1223 blade half male slot.3mf

    Please be more specific than "cannot be printed". What happens when you try? Ofcourse we can try to see if something goes wrong when we load the project, but in this case for example a screenshot would have been helpful. Help us help you.

     

    When I load your 3mf project, it looks like Cura thinks the model has some geometry at its original origin. You can see that from the "shadow" that is way too large. I used the "Split model into parts" function of the MeshTools plugin (available from the Marketplace) to separate that phantom part from the wing part. This made Cura realise the true footprint of the part so it could fit on the buildplate.

        (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.
