Hello Hive Mind,
I’ve run into a bizzare problem I can’t resolve. I’ve tried two versions of Cura for this (4.8 and 3.1) and both do the same. I haven’t done anything with Prusa yet because I’m so deep into this project that I don’t want to have to learn anything new at this stage of the game.
One element of the model I’m making involves a corrugated steel shed. It’s a pity I can’t upload the STL.
On my initial test print, I printed it in super quality and it took an hour, but the slanted roof was kind of ugly, so I thought I’d re-position it on it’s roof, on a raft and, given that the angle is only 15 degrees, it shouldn’t need supports on the walls. I figured that would cut down on the print time since the 1hr print had internal supports under the roof.
Now, when I slice it, I just get the roof on a raft.
Positioning it in this orientation…
Yields this mess when you slice it. As an added bonus, the number of layers shown, when multiplied by the .2mm layer height comes to the actual height of the shed and clearly this puddle isn’t that tall.
And yet this orientation printed fine.
