Why does my first layer isn't showing when I use support?

Posted · Why does my first layer isn't showing when I use support?

Hi everyone

I haven't tried it in a print but when I add supports on a print, Cura (3.0, 2.3,...) only shows supports on layer 1 even if the model has a flat surface.

The model appears on the second layer

Layer 1:

Layer 2:

It's quite strange.

Thank you

Hi. My guess is that the bottom surfaces of the model are not absolutely flat or that the bottom surfaces are not completely aligned with the build plate. What happens if you lower the model very slightly into the build plate (i.e. set model position z slightly -ve)?

Well, the problem is that the model is perfectly flat. It has been cut in netfabb. And if I don't put the support material, I don't have this problem. It only occurs when I use support :O

Pretty weird huh?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
