all the ones i have found seem to be a bit off.

Penetrations being printed as solid - Solved

by lanternfish

Hi all

I am having a problem with designed penetrations being printed as solid. In the 1st screengrab you will see the sketchup model. The hatched area is the base of the model to show that the holes do indedd penetrat the top layer(s). The 2nd screengrab shows the slicer output with the 4 large holes filled. Any suggestions as to why this is happening??
The model is designed so that when printed the support material will act as a diffusser.
Cheers
