Ask how to set up Raft in Cura


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ask how to set up Raft in Cura

Sorry I'm not answering your question but I hope I can be helpful anyway.


Is this PLA?  What kind of printer is this?  Raft is an old technology already on it's way out before Cura was written.  Because of this I suspect it doesn't work very well in Cura (probably works better in slic3r).


You shouldn't need a raft unless you are printing high temp materials (like ABS) and don't have a heated bed.  Is that the case?  Do you have a heated bed?

Are you printing something other than PLA?
