First Layer when support enabled (v2.7 +)

Recommended Posts

In settings try disabling the checkbox that makes the part always sit on the bed (cura settings - not slicer settings). Then use the move tool and move your part downwards by .5mm and see if that makes a difference. I'm wondering if most of your part is kind of up off the build plate.

Sorry for the late reply, i went back to 2.6.2 as it works without issues with all the models i tried. I have now downloaded the latest 3.1.0 and it still does this strange first layer when supports are enabled, I couldnt find the exact setting you mentioned, but i did find under general settings "Auto drop models to build plate", not sure if that worked. If i put the model to anything over -.1 it wont slice and greys the model as if its outside the build volume.

    • "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.
