First Layer adjustment on S5

Recommended Posts

Posted · First Layer adjustment on S5

I am working on some parts that need clearance between elements of the design. 

I decided to run a couple of tests to determine what the optimum clearance will be.

In printing the tests, the clearance is there, except for the first layer.

The first layer spreads out, as it should, to help adhesion.

But this spread closes the clearance gap between the elements in the design.

Is there a way in Cura or on the S5 to adjust the X axis only on prints that need clearance?

 

Thanks in advance for any help or comments offered!

Not if you only want to have it on the X axis, but you can adjust it for X & Y with "First layer horizontal expansion" and set it to -0.2 or -0.3.
