I’m a complete newbie. Just rec’d first 3d printer (LulzBot mini). I created a simple building w/ a Voxel creator and thought I would try and print it real quick. This might be just a basic “hey idiot, you cannot print something w/o bottom layers because the plastic has nothing to build from.” Anyhow, when I loaded my model into Cura it placed it flat (vs. upright). Here is the result after printing.
This got me to try a few other items (i.e. a Voxel character). But, it was doing the same “string” thing again around his circular-ish head and extended arm.
As I was browsing the internet, I came across the below cube and was thinking it will have the same problem (that the top bars won’t print correctly and the plastic will just print weird strings). I’m about to try it out as I’m assuming someone has printed this in the past (so, maybe there is just a setting in Cura that I need to learn).
Any thoughts? Probably a 3d print 101 thing. Sorry.
