Layers View Not Showing Entire Object

Recommended Posts

Please update your country in your settings "location" field.

There's lots of possible reasons. First go to xray view. Any areas in red are a potential problem - they indicate that there is either a hole in the model or an extra internal wall that can confuse the slicer.

You might have to fix the model but usually you can play with the "fix horrible" checkboxes in the expert settings. Usually A or B fixes it. Or some other combination of all the checkboxes. There are 11 combinations (never check A and B at the same time). If none of the 11 combinations fix it you have to fix the model.

There are other possible causes (polygons smaller than .1mm in rare cases can confuse the slicer) but it's probably just a non-manifold model (not solid).

I believe (but not entirely sure), thin structures will show in the 3D view but the slicer will remove them if they are less than (or possibly equal to) 0.4mm so they won't show in the layers view. I believe the layers view is largely driven by the output of the slicer which is a separate process. So it's possible that Cura will show something in the 3D view and not realize it was removed by the slicer.

If the missing items are very thin, you need to make them .4mm (or slightly larger than .4mm) so the slicer doesn't remove them.
