Hollow object without closed body, slicer adding bottom

Tue Feb 11, 2020 1:01 pm

Hello All -

Brand new to 3Dprinting, and have run some tests with other software. I don't know all the terminology, so forgive my ignorance as I'm learning. Print came out fine but need to print on a larger printer (German RepRap X500). Using this software (which is different from software I used for original print) the slicer is adding a bottom, gaps, and added material. Attached are images of the import in preview mode, and one when prepared for print. Any tips?

Hi tef11,
please share wit us your STL, anyway you can try to:

  • export again or fix your STL;
  • play with the "Slicing Behavior" settings in the "Advanced" tab.
