Every time I try to print a structure with a hole in contact with the print bed (like the attached image), the holes get filled in. If I turn it 90 degrees it works just fine, but for some of my planned prints turning it 90 degrees is not an option. Am I doing something wrong, or is there just no way to do this.

Thanks

    Please show in slice view or show actual part. I'm going to guess you simply need to turn off "brim".

    Or are the filled in all the way up? Try unchecking all the "fix horrible" settings in expert settings.

    Looking at the Layers view in Cura, the holes were filled all the way up. Unchecking the "fix horrible" settings in expert view seems to have fixed it! Thanks!

    I am running another short print but will update here when I try this one again later today.

    Thanks again!
