2nd Layer above raft is missing

Recommended Posts

Posted · 2nd Layer above raft is missing

Hello, everyone,

I have a problem with slicing when I use a raft.


No matter how thick I make the raft, the second or third layer over the raft gets lost.

I lose the connection between the layers and the pressure goes into the pants.

Do you have this problem too? Does anyone know the problem ?

Hello I actually never printed with a raft. But as far as I know it is normal that there is a gap between the raft and the part, without it it would be impossible to remove the raft of the part... 

I think I have read somewhere that this gap can be configured in Cura, but as I never used it I can not give an advice on the optimal gap. (between support and print the gap is 1 layer)

I looked in Cura and found that:


By default the gap is 0.3mm. I would try reducing it to 0.2 and then adjust if necessary,
