Z axis issue

I'm having a very strange problem with my Ultimaker 3. I'm currently printing with Nylon and PVA. I'm first printing a raft in Nylon which prints perfectly. Afterwards it's supposed to print the PVA supports, but the printer doesn't move the buildplate downwards and the nozzle just scratches through the raft layer after layer until I abort it. Does anyone have an idea as to why this is happening? I printed many times with almost the same settings (apart from shell thickness and overhang angle and speed) and everything was perfect.
