Move Function in Cura 2.5.0

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

    • "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.
