Cura is Taking Chunks Out of My Model When It's Sliced

Posted · Cura is Taking Chunks Out of My Model When It's Sliced

I'm trying to print an f22 raptor, but when I sliced my model, I saw chunks taken out of the model. I'm printing with 0.15 layer height and scaled the model to 800 %, as the model was shrunk, probably due to a file conversion error made by the person who modelled it.

In this image, you can see the dark grey areas where the model is, and the red part is what is sliced.

    if the wing is very thin, certain parts near the edges may be thinner than your line width, leading to the slicer excluding them. you should try and reduce line thickness and see if that helps

    Hi @Schmordan,


    I'll think this model was created in inch, so I'd imported it into F360 and exported it to Cura "Arachne Beta".

    Often when slicing this thin models, it's valuable to turn the model in pitch or yaw plane (using 1 degrade resolution) and you'll see very often that the slicer works much better in viewing small details.  Edit: This will also be the position/attitude you have to print the model in.


    Here's an example of your model pitched much up, just to fit the platform, but also to see how the slicer act.

    It all depend of how this model is to be used. As an object to view or as a model to fly (RC) with?


    Here is a picture of the sliced model:



    Oh, sure, -it's a single wall that's need infill and outside support.


    Here is one project file using UM2E+ and one stl file with the model pitched nose up:




    Good luck

      • 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.
