cura slicing issue with hole

Recommended Posts

The X-Ray view is showing red areas. This means there's something wrong with the model. You can try different combinations of the "Fix horrible" check boxes in the Expert settings and see if a combination there makes cura slice it the way you expect. Or you could try repairing it with netfabb's cloud service for example: https://netfabb.azurewebsites.net/

A bit more info on the problem can be found here:

Is that sketch-up? Then most likely, duplicate faces and internal faces. Sketch-up is quite bad for solid modeling actually. It has a tendency to generate bad models, as it's mode made for visual modeling.

I'm not sure what you are exactly designing, but I usually recommend DesignSpark Mechanical (or it's bigger brother, Spaceclaim) for part modeling.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
