Not slicing properly.

Postby cullymoto » Tue Feb 14, 2017 3:48 am

This has happened with a few different models now, when I slice the model I always look at the preview.

Lately IM removes the entire top of the model. I'll have top features of the model floating mid air etc, when before slicing everything looks good and complete.

I can change a profile in the slice, even set the same parameters and end up with a solidly topped slice on the same model that moments before was missing its top layers.
What's going on here? I must be doing something wrong no?

Figured it out...
I'm dumb.
Spiral vase mode "on" was the culprit. Makes cleaner prints as the nozzle jumps around much less, but it won't print the tops of things.

yup I'd really love to see spiral mode then finish with 3 shells to strengthen the top brim
