Hello everyone. I don't know what's going on with my cura 5.2.1, every time I import a file the drop down model puts the file lower than zero and cuts the document by about 0.29mm. I don't understand why this happens, i can correct file by file but i want to change that.

    Hey @CinzasR,

     

    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉

    Are you loading an STL or a .3mf? 3mfs often have their position in space saved. 
    The lighter color is often an indication that it matches the buidplate exactly.
    How did you learn that the file is cut by 0.29 mm? 
     

    Do you have a project file for us? It contains the printer and settings we need for troubleshooting. 

    To save a project file go to File -> Save project.

    Has an explanation been given yet? I went searching on google regarding this very topic, and wound up here. I noticed my models in Cura were being sunken below the build surface, but in my case adding +0.059 to Zaxis put it properly on the plate.

    That probably just means part of your model is underneath the origin point (i.e. its Z co-ordinate is negative). Easy to do, if you're trying. Not too hard to do accidentally.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.
