OK, here's the story.

Thingiverse .stl  file.  It printed on the Fab II via Repetier Host after generation in two pieces (meshmix) due small bed size.

Loaded original file into Prusa Control, looks OK, is visually zero'd on bed onscreen.

Generate .gcode, generates without errors.

SD card into Mk3.

Preheat, Print.

Prints starts with test line OK, but then extruder is sitting maybe 5mm high and while tracing the right path does not emit filament at all.

Printer runs other files afterwards perfectly, so def the file, but since the visual model on screen sits in the right place on the bed, what can I do to correct please?

have you tried running the design through a 3d repair service?

Netfabb is a free reliable one Ive used quite often.

https://service.netfabb.com/login.php

just sign in using your google account, upload the STL.file, let Netfabb do its thing then download the "fixed" file.

see if that sorts it out

THANKS - Must have been brain dead not to remember that from you mentioning here before!   :slap:

Ran it, and its now printing apparently OK. (It's a four hour print but looking good after 15 minutes).
