Printing a thin sheet of material (0.06mm, minimum layer resolution)

Posted · Printing a thin sheet of material (0.06mm, minimum layer resolution)

I am trying to print a thin sheet of material at 0.06mm thick, which is the minimum layer resolution that the printer I am using (Ultimaker S5) can print at. In Cura, when I import the model of a 0.06mm sheet and try to slice it, I get a time of 0 min 0 sec and no layers are there. I assume Cura is ignoring this part in some way because of its size, any ideas on how to get this to work?

 

For reference I have the layer resolution set to 0.06mm

    Besides the main layer height of the print you also have an Initial Layer height which is substantially thicker than 0.06mm. You could lower that setting to get it to print but... to be honest I'm not sure how happy you'll be with the result, that's a very very thin sheet leaving very little room for error.
