Cura 4.5 raft max size bug

Posted · Cura 4.5 raft max size bug

I have a model that prints vertically,  it maximum size at any point is about 295 mm wide(X) ,  375mm high(Z) and 190mm, deep (Y), however contact at the build plate is quite small around 70mmx15mm, so needs a large raft to support it as it grows,  of course there is heaps of room for a larger raft with such a small contact area,   but  the max size that Cura 4.5 allows 20mm extra margin which is quite small around 100mmx40mm  as it is basing max size for raft on model max X/Y instead of contact area max X/Y.  See photo attached of just how much larger the raft could have been.   At minimum a max size raft override option is needed, unless there is something I am missing or do not know.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
