Just updated from PS2.0 to PS2.1.  Now a model that I've been printing successfully won't print.  An error dialog pops up saying 'Empty layers detected, the output would not be printable'.  This is a simple rectangular plate with a cutout in the middle for the version number (STL & 'repaired' OBJ attached).  I tried 'repairing' the model with File->Repair STL file, but no luck.  PS produced an OBJ file, but it too generated the same error. I also tried different orientations - same result.

I just got through printing this model using PS 2.0, with no problems, so I'm not sure what is going on.  Is this a newly-introduced 'feature' in PS2.1?  If so, how do I go about downgrading back to 2.0 so I can get some printing done?

I'm not sure the files got attached.  I can't seem to see them anywhere, and they aren't shown in the preview.  I can 'choose a file', but there's no indication that they are actually attached to the post. Grrrr.

So, I submitted the post to the forum, and *after* it was uploaded, I got an error message saying 'file type not allowed'!  How can an STL and/or OBJ file not be allowed in a post dealing with a 3D printer?

TIA,

Frank

Except for image types, files need to be zipped. 

It is always wise to get more than one opinion... as for trusting Prusa? No way man....

Aha, and thanks!  Then the miracle is that the model printed in the first place 😉

I fixed the design in Tinkercad, and it is now printing happily
