A part of structure is missing in preview, but visible in x-ray

Posted · A part of structure is missing in preview, but visible in x-ray

Hi,

 

I am new to 3D printing. I am trying to print following file but it seems like the middle X part is missing after slicing.

X-ray mode does not provide any information. I am pretty sure the structure is thicker than 0.4mm

I am trying to use tree support, wondering if this can cause such issue.

 

any help or suggestions?

    This may have to do with your settings. If you save a project (File -> Save project...) and post that file, we can see both the model and all your settings. As is, I can only say "it works for me"

    Hi,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I am not too sure what I've done.

    But in the process of following your advice (saving as a project and upload here), I noticed that the file is now working.

     

    I feel like restarting the program resolved the issue itself. Wonder if this is a known glitch.

     

    Thank you anyway, have a good day 🙂

    Hi again!

    I may have found the reason why.

    The issue comes back when I try to use "Spiralized Outer Contour" aks Vase mode. Cura would exclude the middle X structure in this case.

    Is there a walk around for this issue?

     

    Normal mode takes about 1Day 13 hrs to print, while the vase mode is ~9hr without the X structure. I feel like if vase mode would be much quicker
