Cura fills holes

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura fills holes

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.)
