Cura disappears some elements


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura disappears some elements


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 ?
