Missing Infill

Mon Mar 16, 2020 8:36 pm

Hello,

I designed a calibration pattern object and when I slice it in Simplyfy3D there is a detail that does not have infill. Whoever if I slice it in Slic3r the same area it is filled. I printed the part just to confirm and yeap, there is no filling (Images and factory file attached).

Thank you in advance for your help.

Mesh menu==>Separate Connected Surfaces. Click it! Problem solved….

Now the long bit...the explanation. The .stl file has multiple meshes...caused by CAD package. & S3D does not like multiple meshes.

Sweet! Thank you! That did the trick. Now the question is... how did you know? Most of the post I found mentioned to change infill settings, extrusion with, nozzle diameter, etc.

...by understanding how the package works! Simple as that!
