Raft is not under the Object


Recommended Posts

Posted · Raft is not under the Object

Check the Z of the part in the Move tool.  It should be "0".

Sometimes the part is sitting at a slight angle and although it looks to be flush on the plate, it isn't.  The Rotation tool has a "Lay Flat" option that can help.

Sometimes the bottom of a model simply isn't flat.  The low point holds the rest of the model in the air and Cura notices and only puts a raft/skirt/brim around that touching point.  In that case lowering the model into the build plate by some small distance can eliminate the problem.

On such a simple model this isn't usually a problem - but if the model has reversed surfaces or open seams (not Water-Tight) then things can get odd as Cura sees one thing, you see it another way, and you're both wrong because areas of the model are inside-out.
