Cura fills holes

Recommended Posts

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.)

    • "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.
