Cura does not print holes at bottom

Posted (edited) · Cura does not print holes at bottom

Hi there,


I want to print a file I made with blender.
It has a hole at the bottom, but Cura always slices/prints the complete bottom layers without the hole:




And here a screenshot from blender with face orientation on:




So the normals look good to me and I tried several settings in cura (Remove all holes is off, Bottom Layer Count = 0 etc.)

But I still get the object sliced without the hole at the bottom.


Does anybody have an idea what I could do, so Cura prints the object with the hole?

    I had a similar issue and found "Make Overhangs Printable" was ticked in the experimental section in Cura.  If it's ticked, untick it, and hopefully that will fix your issue.

    I just found the problem.
    I had missing faces betweend the 2 bottom layers, so the walls were open.
    I selected on the edges of the two layers and clicked on "Bridge Edge Loops".




    Now it works as expected in cura.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
