1mm tall part sliced at 0.1mm yields 4 layers ?? - Confused

Okay guys, I am confused, I thought that if I have 0.1 mm layer height and I am building a 1 mm part, I would end up with 10 layers.

how come CURA is only giving me 4 ?

Is the model sitting on the buildplate ? Perhaps the z value is < 0?

I feel like a rookie.. lol

That is what it was, during the scale from inches to metric it moved into the build plate. Thank you.

 

I struggle to rememeber that step at times, I wish there was a way for the models to NOT go into the build plate unless we make them go in. Sort of like the "scale small items"

There is an option in the preferences to automatically drop the model onto the buildplate. I don't use it myself but perhaps that would help you?
