  • $\begingroup$ Just a note, does the Duplicator mini use 2.85 mm filament? It says so in your settings. On topic: this is a peculiar issue, never seen this before in years of printing, I have no clue. If you load the G-code file back in Cura or an online G-code visualization tool, how does the virtual print look? $\endgroup$ – 0scar Mar 22 at 8:05
  • $\begingroup$ I'm guessing it involves an STL file with half the triangles reversed, probably because someone designed half of the object then mirrored everyting as STL (including the triangle orientations) to make the other half. The solution is going to be either going back to create a proper/valid STL file or using one of the many mesh fixer utilities available. $\endgroup$ – R.. GitHub STOP HELPING ICE Mar 22 at 13:27
  • $\begingroup$ please preview the movement paths. I agree with R.. that there might be an isssue with the STL $\endgroup$ – Trish Mar 22 at 15:07
