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:


and more specifically:


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

    • "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.
