Posted · Move Function in Cura 2.5.0

I'm pretty sure I was able to do this in previous versions of Cura, so maybe I'm doing something wrong.

I'm using Cura 2.5.0 with a UMO+. I want to use the Move command to drop the bottom of the model slightly below the build plate because the bottom is not perfectly flat. I can move the model by dragging the blue "Z" arrow, but this is not very precise. Instead I want to enter a precise value in the Z dimension box, but when I enter a number (say -0.45 mm) it doesn't take and goes back to whatever setting it was at before I tried to enter a number. Any ideas what's going on?

    Just a silly throw in there as well, it would be nice to beable to put in specific rotations by axis in degrees like scaling and moving. And, also to add the ability to raise the model above the 0-Z point.

    Above the z = 0 can be done by disabling the "automatically drop objects on the build plate" option.

     

    This was pointed out to me in another thread yesterday and glad you did so here to clear up any confusion I may have created.
