Raft not printing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Raft not printing

I almost always print a raft with my prints with good results; the raft has always encompassed a larger area of the build plate than the print itself.


Latest print with the same raft settings only prints a couple of small rafts at two points between the build plate and the print resulting in the print failing at points without any raft.


Recently updated both Ultimaker S5 firmware as well as latest version of Cura.


Any advice would be appreciated.

    Figured it out. There was a tiny projection on the bottom of the print resulting in the vast bulk of the print being slightly elevated off the build plate.
