Any way to do a raft lead-in with Cura? Gap at start of raft, curls.

Recommended Posts

I'm using Cura 2.5 with a Monoprice printer. Overall, it's a very good system, much better than expected and amazing for the price. However, I have a very consistent problem. There is always a 2-3 second delay on the extruder at the start of every print. When I print a raft, it prints the outline first, then the infill, and the first few inches of the outline are always missing. Then the infill next to the gap starts to curl up. Sometimes it only curls up for a few mm, sometimes for several cm, and a few times the entire print has broken loose. Is there a way in Cura to specify a lead-in for the raft, or start the extruder 2-3 seconds early, or specify two boundary lines for the first layer of the raft?

    • "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.
