Only supports on layer one with 0.3 mm layer height

Recommended Posts

In Cura 2.4.0 with the following settings I get only support on Z layer 1:

0.3 mm layer height

Support Enabled,

Build Plate Adhesion Type: None,

Layer one only prints supports, no part paths are generated. Layer two has part paths and support paths. This leads to a 3D print that does not stick well to the build plate due to layer 1 not having part data.  Seems like a rounding error or oversight for thicker layer height printing, sine these same settings work in Cura 15.04.

See the attached image from Cura 2.4.0, Layers View Mode, showing layer 1 with only support paths.

I have just had the same problem and have been scouring for answers. I dont know if you managed to solve the issue but I found out how to by accident! try changing your layer size down. I had mine set at 0.5mm layer with a 0.8mm nozzle and it resulted in the issue you noted. If I reduce the layer height to 0.3mm it prints fine.

Thought I would post incase you are still having trouble.

    • "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.
