Help with cura slicing (pics)

Recommended Posts

OK I loaded you .obj fie into Cura 14.07. Probably a different version to you and I got a different result, albeit wrong

C1

C2

I then loaded the .obj file into Meshmixer and ran Inspector

C3

No idea what all those pointers are but presumable errors.

I saved it as an STL file then loaded the STL into Meshlab and visually it looked fine. I displayed non-manifold edges and got 1668 non manifold edges over and 5961 faces over the non-manifold edges. As you can see they all seem to be around the top of the model.

(edited to correct the picture)

 

C6

I then loaded the STL file into Netfabb Basic and got an error during loading

C5

I tried loading the .obj file and that loaded successfully. Doing a health check though reported that the mesh was not closed and was not orientable.

In the background whilst all this was going on, I had loaded the STL file into Repetier Host; it was hung during or at the end of the intersection tests.

I tried fixing the model in both Meshmixer and Netfabb but failed. Playing around with meshes is not my strong suite – hopefully someone else can help!

I loaded the mesh into InStep which reported 7,545 errors including 1950 pierced facets, 4000+ unattached edges.

There are 122 bodies in the mesh. I am guessing that all the bits of corn are separate bodies and where thay have all been joined together, it has not gone very well.

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
