No more "Initial layer Z offset"?

Recommended Posts

I just update my month or two old Cura to the latest 3.1.0 and I'm missing this feature.

I needed it to get fully smooth bottom surface while having perfect flow amount for the rest of the layers.

Did it get removed, is it hidden by a bug or did something replace it?

I tried it and it seemed to use the Z sensor offset value rather than adjusting the height as such. If you had a Z offset of -1.5 and set the first layer setting to 0.1 in Cura thinking it would print at 0.3 instead of 0.2 it would crash the nozzle into the bed.

Probably as well it's been removed !

    • "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.
