Object placed in between buildplate

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just started using Cura to print some models using my Ultimaker 2 Extended Printer that I just got. I'm having a problem where the model I upload is either located entirely below the build plate or partially above and partially below (shown in the picture). I haven't figured out a way to move the object in the z direction or any command to place it directly on the build plate. Any suggestions?5a33195a276cc_CuraMessup2.thumb.JPG.f58252072be0915d448cb692e7400b90.JPG[/media]

Since your Cura settings might be messed up, you could switch the quick print profiles (menu "Expert") and then switch to full settings. Cura will warn/ask you that this will overwrite any custom settings you made. That's a good way to actually see how those quick print profiles are set.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
