Cura disappears some elements

Recommended Posts


I'm a newbie... :wink:

My first project with the new UM2 is to create a box. I've build it in C4D.

When I open the STL in cura it looks like in C4D.

In the layers-view the narrow bridge on top is no longer visible in all quickprint profiles!

Unfortunately, the bridge is not printed...

Have I done something wrong?

Thanks for the help.

Kind regards

How thick is the bridge on the mold ?

Im guessing with standard settings in Cura and the print dimensions of the normal ultimaker nozzle.. Cura will automatically ignore this piece if it is smaller.

Did you try thickening it up a little to .4mm if that is possible in your design and see if that works ?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
