Cura 13.06.4 (the last version available): is there a bug???

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm using Cura a lot in this period and I've noted a little problem in slicing of the last version: when RAFT is enabled and the object has a complex geometry, the software creates the RAFT only where the object touches the buildplate (few points). As a consequence, the support material will be built 2 or 3 layers over, where the extruder will be quite far from the buildplate and we'll have no adhesion with the lower layers/the plate. According to my rationality and my experience (also with older Cura's versions) with slicers, the RAFT has to fill the entire "footprint" of the object, the entire area under the object.

In this way, printing of complex objectes will be simpler and faster, won't be?

Bye,

Ant

Why never using RAFT?? Raft is very very usefull to avoid warping of complex parts and to stabilize the extrusion Temperature and the flux of melted material. I used it a lot to obtain parts of prototypes sold with great satisfaction of the buyer. The best of protyping is obatined optimizing raft and support structure.. so I think it's importan to improve these features of a slicer, whatever it is!

    • "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.
