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.
