how to get my model to lay flat on the bed

Recommended Posts

If your models consists of multiple separate pieces, make sure to align them in your CAD program, so that all bottoms are in the same horizontal plane.

 

Also check if there are no tiny pieces out of view somewhere in the design. If a tiny thing is sitting below the bottom of the other object, then that tiny thing will sit on the glass, and the rest will float.

 

Or in Cura, split the design in separate parts.

 

Any of these should work, I think.

    • "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.
