Not printing holes

Hi

Please take a look at this image of my object...

http://www.bredel.dk/um2/sokkeltandhjul.jpg

When I open my model in Cura, alle view modes show the center hole.

Except the layer view, where the center holes is filled out...

...unfortunately this is also how it is printed.

So can someone please explain what is going wrong with the slizer, or which considerations I should take to have these holes printed?

Have experienced it with many of my models that have holes?!

Thanks

Kind regards Taras

    Might be that the normals of the holes are the wrong way around. Then Cura can decided to fill instead of keep a hole open.

    In the expert settings there are "fix horrible" settings, unchecking the "type A" one changes this behaviour.

    Hi Daid

    "the normals" is a unfamiliar term for me.

    But I'll try the setting to se if it helps.

    Thanks!

    nallath > Correct (and funny), should have been "Cura printing/filling holes"

    Tried netfabb fixer, and that solved it, all layers are correct now!

    Thanks!

    "the normals" is a unfamiliar term for me.

     

    In sketchup the default surface is white on the outside, gray on the inside. You can right click on any triangle and swap sides. This could take many days if you have hundreds of thousands of triangles that need swapping. Fortunately Cura has a "fix horrible" option to take care of this.

    While I love sketchup, it's not very good for models to be printed.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
