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

Recommended Posts

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

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

I recommend you don't use raft ever with cura. You shouldn't ever need raft.

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!

I think I'm with George... is there really a valid use case for Raft (on an Ultimaker)? I think I've only ever used it once. Am I missing something?

Same here. I've never found a good reason to use a raft, though I've tried them many times. If a raft works at all, a brim works better!
