First layer and second layer dont fit together in Cura2.3.1 when using support

Recommended Posts

Hi, i do have a problem here and would be happy about some help,

i am print a big print (on an ultimaker original with heated bed upgrade).

similar prints worked out, but now the following problem appears in cura and in the real print aswell.

Cura produces a first layer for the support (cyan) the real print with the actual outline just starts on layer 2 and does not go together with the real print, actually it is bigger at certain ends of the print, so the print gets not grip there and deforms and gets mistakes on the lowest parts.

So i don´t understand why it does not work properly. if i switch of support at all, the first layer is fine again.

Brim does not have influence on this problem.

In the printed model it is similar to a raft and the print is unfortunately useless.

anybody an idea what the problem is? I printed similar models without problem before.(it is not the machine).

    • 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.
