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

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

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).

    I have initially solved this by moving down the model for 10 layers.

    Now it is sunk into the platform for about 13 to 15 layers and therefore there is no more manual correction possible. (move up is not possible with the move tools)

    I don't understand. You only need to move the model down 2 layers - not 15.

    There is no upper limit on how much you move something down. You can just fill in numbers in the move tool window.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
