First layer of file from Cura is printing too high

Posted · First layer of file from Cura is printing too high

I am having difficulty printing from all Cura files. They all print too high on the z axis.  I am using  Creality Ender 3 for printing.  Any suggestions on how to fix this? (I am new to 3D printing.)

There is a setting in Cura under "Quality" called "Initial Layer Height".  It sets the height for Layer 1 and I think the default is .28mm.  It does not change automatically when you change the regular layer height.

If the setting isn't visible, slide the cursor across the Quality bar and click on the gear icon.  Then check the box for Initial Layer Height.
