Object not even showing up in Cura

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I've been printing a bunch of parts I made in Sketchup for the past few weeks. I export them as COLLADA files and just load them into Cura and print them without an issue. I've printed 10+ parts and this is the last one I need and for the life of me I can't get it to show up in Cura. I've redrawn it multiple times and even changed it slightly to see if it would work but it just literally won't show up in layers view. Could anyone help?

This is the part I'm trying to make.

Any suggestions are very helpful. Thanks!

For sketchup you need to use solid inspector plugin. This checks you're drawings for errors and makes sure it's a solid or watertight.

cleanup3 is also good for removing lines and faces that shouldn't be there.

In Cura if you use xray view, things in red are errors.

and if you can see it in normal view but not layers then you may have a setting wrong.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
