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).

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
