Cura fills holes

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Cura closes the holes on one side, as you can see from the two images below. Any idea why?

How does the model look in X-ray view?

Have you tried playing with the fix horribles settings (expert config)?

Red areas in the x-ray view means it is your model that is broken, not Cura.

For anyone else who needed to solve this problem, here is the solution I found to prevent/stop Cura from filling in an intentional hole in the model.

(Cura would show the Solid & XRay views with the intended hole, but the layer view would show that it was intending to fill in the ~6cm hole in my model.)

 

I had to enable a hidden option:

Cura > Settings > Configure Setting Visibility > Mesh Fixes (Section) > enable "Union Overlapping Volumes" & "Remove All Holes"

 

Now my sidebar settings show "Union Overlapping Holes" enabled by default.  Turning this off showed the hole I wanted printed intact.

("Remove All holes" was already Off by default, which is what we want.)
