No more "Initial layer Z offset"?

Recommended Posts

Posted · No more "Initial layer Z offset"?

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?

If you are talking about what I think, then the setting was added during development and then (for some reason I forget now) the feature was removed but the setting got left in the front end by mistake. I'm not sure that it was ever fully functional?

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 !
