Part Rotation and Layer Mismatch

Mon Jun 06, 2016 3:14 pm

Has anyone seen anything similar after rotating a part?

I was able to edit the Gcode file to correct this single layer, but I am pretty sure this should not happen.

Part rotated 180 deg. and resliced. Layer 96 is a mess.

Can you post the factory file? Just setup the print and right before you click "Prepare to Print", go to File > Save Factory File. That will make it easier to see what's wrong.

What you're seeing is the known issue with S3D not handling minute errors and inconsistencies in the model mesh correctly.

A first try at resolving the issue would be to upgrade to the new release v3.10, which according to the changelog has coding changes specifically to address the type of issue you are experiencing.

If upgrading doesn't improve the slicing when rotated, try altering the layer thickness by 0.001 mm, either up or down, and see if that resolves the slicing issues.

A third way to address this would be to submit your .stl file to the cloud model repair service: https://netfabb.azurewebsites.net/ Import the fixed version and try slicing again.

It's slicing fine for me. Are you using the latest 3.1.0 version? They added some more automatic repair stuff in that version, so it's a lot better at dealing with files that may have small errors like this that were only affecting one single layer.

If you're still using an older version, go try the new one and let us know how that works

Yes, in 3.1 all is well. Thanks for the assistance.
