Gaps in sliced model  

Active Member


After slicing a model in Cura I seem to have gotten gaps in the program.
Is this just visual or something else. Because at a print I did earlier the places these spots are in seem rather bumpy.

Is that the z-seam? Cura does coasting where extrusion stops before the end of lines.

Your picture looks like you have coasting enabled in Cura.

The purpose of Coasting is to reduce stringing when the z-axis is raised.  Coasting replaces the last part of the extrusion path with a travel path.   The extruder is then expected to have enough internal pressure to ooze enough plastic to print the last part of the path. When there isn't enough pressure / ooze, you get holes in the print.   Try slicing with "Coasting Enabled" unchecked and see if they holes go away.

Yes, had coasting enabled. Turned it off and the problem is gone. Thank you
