Here my model loads correctly and looks exactly as expected and how I want it to print. cR0Onih.jpg

But once the slicing occurs, the circular concave part at the top gets covered over. Hth1D6i.jpg

Any idea why?

    Sorry it was late when I posted and my brain was not engaged. What I said may work. But it is not really the solution because I do not understand why Cura would do that. If you want to send me your STL file I will have a look.

    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.

    Cura's X-Ray view will most likely help you idenfiying the issue as well.

      • 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
