Turn off model snaping to build platform.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Turn off model snaping to build platform.

Normally the model snapping to the build plate is a good thing.  I found a case where I want to suspend a item above the build plate for cooling purposes, and only print support in this area for most of the print.

 

How do I turn off the function of the model auto snapping to the build plate in CURA?  I have seen the option before, just can't find it.  I am running 3.4.1 atm.

 

Thanks

You can configure it in settings/preferences of Cura:
