Cura removes segmets when slicing


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura removes segmets when slicing

I ran across a problem when slicing in Cura, it creates a space in between sliced layers, and will create a mess when printing.

when it slices all goes well, but after the toolpath reaches 100% the gap is created,

is this a glitch in Cura, and how do I solve it.

I tried numerous settings, but all did the same :(

tried it on two Mac computers, with diff versions of Cura

this is a large print, and I cannot afford to mess up with long prints and lots of material.

    I've seen this too. I believe it to be a model issue. Please check if you can import the model somewhere it was created(sketchup, openSCAD, etc) and export it with different settings that make a better model.

    Something is wrong with your model. YOu have several choices.

    First - try checking "fix horrible A" and later B and see if that fixes the issue. If not there are 11 combinations of those that can fix it.

    Secondly, to fix it properly you could look at it in XRAY view. Anything the color red is a problem. Red indicates that a line passing through the model goes through an odd number of walls. Blue or white: even. Odd number of walls indicates an extra wall or a missing wall.

    There is an online service that can fix this model instantly and for free. I forget but I think it's netfabb online possibly?

    Thanks guys, it was indeed a teensy tiny gap in the model,

    I already used Meshmixer to close all the gaps, but after the first rounds of gap fixing I hit the check tab again, and still showed a secondary gap :???:

    seems you have to hit the check for gaps tab multiple times after fixing, it might still show gaps that need fixing :mrgreen:

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
