Slice / fill problem (bug?) with Minion Keychain Cura 14.03rc7

Recommended Posts

Posted · Slice / fill problem (bug?) with Minion Keychain Cura 14.03rc7

I printed a minion keychain (thingiverse) using Cura 14.01 and Cura 14.03rc7.

The top part of the minion (the keychain ring) is filled in (closed) although it is not closed in the .STL file.

The screenshots are from Cura 14.01. In 14.01 only the left ring is filled. In Cura 14.03 only a bottom layer seems filled, but in the print the entire ring is filled:

(Part printed on UM2 using Cura 14.03rc7 gcode)

I tried printing with Cura 14.01 but then only left half had filled ring. The right was only partially filled in bottom layers.

 

This seems like a slicing bug. Or is it a settings thing?

Go into expert settings and uncheck "Combine everything (Type-A)" and see how that goes.

That solves it! Thanks.

At least in the gcode/layer preview it seems to be solved. I will have to wait until tomorrow to print.

Just looked at this, and the normals of the ring are the wrong way around, which is why the ring is filled with "TypeA fix horrible"
