I have a problem that just started. Some students created solid objects using Solidworks, saved the part as an STL file, I imported that into Cura 3.4.1, set up the parameters, saved as a gcode file. When printing only the outside edges are printing. These look good. However no bottom or infill is printing. Does anyone have any ideas?
Maybe a better description is the outside walls of the object are printing but the insides are not. One object is a key ring. The outside walls and the wall of the ring hole print but the bottom and the infill is not being printed.
I created an experimental box with a indented cutout in Solidworks, saved it as an STL file, imported into Cura 3.4.1. I then looked at the layer view and see no Infill as I progress through the layers. I looked at the infill settings. The infill density is 50%, infill line distance is 0.05mm, infill pattern is Grid, infill overlap percentage is 10%, infill layer thickness is 0.1618 and gradual infill steps is 5. So, I really do not see why there isn't any infill being created.
OK. I do not know the reason for the problem but I believed I fixed it. I uninstalled and reinstalled Cura. Then I removed and added the 3D printer. After I did that the infill was showing in the layer view.
