Dear, When I order slice in the simplify, no appear nothing. That's right?

idea is good but the design could be more butterfly looking and prettier..

Hello Friend.
It does not make me fill the wings.
It is hollow.
why ?

I'm having a similar issue. Even at 0.05mm(25% the recommended layer height), Cura doesn't want to fill in the wing membranes.

The thickness of the wing inside is 0.2mm. Set the layer thickness to 0.2mm and print again.

I fixed it. I altered the model so that it's 0.1mm thicker.
You'd think setting the layer height at 0.2mm or finer would allow it to slice properly, but here must be a glitch in Cura. Evidently it doesn't acknowledge things below a certain height threshold on the bulid plate regardless of print resolution.

What is your printing resolution?. This resolution is 0.2mm layer thickness.

I'm having a hard time getting it off the base. They break really easily.

Make sure that your first layer is properly adhering to the bed. If not, adjust your first layer and extrusion settings.
Depending on the materials, it can easily break. Use different color materials or other company's products.

I AM printing some of those. Uh, lots of those.
Thank you.

Very Nice Job
Thank-you for sharing
