Firstlayer Problem

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

i have the problem with cura, that the first layer is always printed with to less plastic.

In S3D i have set a with of 200% for the firstlayer, that works fine. In Cura i set this also and

the printed line is much smaller.

 

All settings are the same as in S3D, first layer height, nozzle, wallthikness...

 

I dont know whats wrong in the Cura settings. maybe someone here have a hint for me.

 

Tanks

I've been having this problem recently myself, started with new version of cura. Not sure if it's the same issue, new files I've been slicing are starting the z height higher then it should be, and not squishing the layers properly. Printing old files indicates it's a slicer issue (the old files print fine). I don't have a solution yet, but figured I would mention it as I look for a solution, if you have any suggestions.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
