Floating layers with Prime tower, how to fix?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Floating layers with Prime tower, how to fix?



i’m having troubles with slicing a multi colored part on Cura.

i need to use a prime tower for color changing, but it seems that with 2 colors (red/white) on the prime tower are ‘floating’ in the air. (See pictures)

i have tried everything but unfortunately without succes.


anyone here with the solution?

    Thanks for the reply!


    i don’t understand what you’ve said, un-tick those 2 colors won’t let me slice the model.


    but thats not the problem, it’s just that the red and white color in the prime tower printing in the air, so no structure beneath it. (So the filament will drop down while printing those 2 colors in the prime tower)


    i dont know if that is a problem?

        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.
