Cura height is lower than model height


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura height is lower than model height

I have been adjusting printer settings to calibrate for printing size.

I noticed that if I make a 5.0mm high box and slice it with cura, with the layer height at .2mm and initial height at .2mm, it slices it to 23 layers.

At .2mm per layer that makes it 4.6mm. Is there something I'm missing that would cut off 2 layers?

    Didn't think of that but checked and it is at 0.

    But it got me thinking and I selected the default .2mm setting and it slices to 25 layers, so it mus be something I changed. I'll have to go over all my settings and find the problem.

    Finally found it. Under experimental - slicing tolerance, sometime I had set it to exclusive instead of middle. Must have been trying something and never set it back.

    Thanks for replies.

        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
