Cura 4.11.0 - Not printing thin one layer prints.


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.11.0 - Not printing thin one layer prints.

In order to test my bed level correctness, I typically print some one layer test squares at 0.2mm or 0.24mm thickness. However Cura 4.11.0 seems to not generate a gcode for one layer prints less than 0.3mm thickness. I had no problems doing this in Cura 4.5.0 (last Cura version I used). Is there a setting that I am unaware of in Cura 4.11.0 that needs to be changed to allow slicing below 0.3mm thickness for one layer prints?

    This is a bug in the 4.11 software and has been noted on Github.

    If you change either the material thickness so it's thick enough to slice but not exactly equal to your Initial Layer Height it will slice.

    So if you have a model that is .200 thick then you can scale the model in just the Z to .201, or change the Initial Layer Height to .199.  Either one should work until this is fixed in the next Cura version.
