Raft removes top layers in print AND graphics. Cura 2.5.0

Recommended Posts

Tried a calibration dome, and it behaves great. However, trimming my part for testing of the errors region, it behaves wrong as described in this subject. Seem to be something in my stl geometry that Cura treats differently if it's with a raft or a brim.

Please see link to the trimmed problem part.

Did some Gcode file comparison in p4merge-app, between the files producing the two prints above (identical parts, but one with Brim and the other with Raft.) The Raft version stops after completion of layer 62, whilst the brim version keeps going to the correct end at 67. Strange enough, the Raft version claims to start at layer -9, but when completion of layer -6, it all of a sudden starts, in the same numbering as the brim-version, with layer 0 and so on.

There seem to be some mistake in the Cura produced gcode in my case here. Can anyone give me a hint on how to get past this issue?

Attaching the two Gcode files.

I was looking at the commit log of the CuraEngine master branch:

https://github.com/Ultimaker/CuraEngine/commits/master

and more specifically:

https://github.com/Ultimaker/CuraEngine/commit/35c615f1e043c803a45bfac97b1657950165d094

I don't think pre-built versions of this are available yet but I guess 2.6 betas will arrive before too long.

    • 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.
