Why Cura creates only 8 layers?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Why Cura creates only 8 layers?


I created a STL file with Autodesk Fusion 360. The simple part has a height of exact 1mm in Fusion 360.

Then I exported it as STL file.

If I slice it now using Cura 15.09.90 it just gets 8 layers. Layer height I set to 0.1 mm.

So the height of my part would be 0.8 mm instead of 1.0. :-(

Why I only get 8 layers and not 10? With old Cura 15.02.01 it is the same - only 8 layers.

Here I uploaded the test STL file.

Test STL


BTW: Why this UM forum does not provide a uplaod function for e.g. STL, Cura files etc.?

    Yes this was the reason. My initial layer height was set to 0.3 mm and then of course everything is fine.

    With Cura 15.09.90 by default the initial layer height is not visible in the right pane and so I just forgot about the initial layer height. :O

    Thanks guys!

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
