Curious Z offset happening with raft.

Posted · Curious Z offset happening with raft.

So... I'm having a bit of trouble with a miniature I'm printing for my D&D group.  I decided on this attempt to use a raft because on a previous print, a couple of the supports had failed to stick to the build plate.  Anyways... the print was a complete failure.  When I went back to Cura to make some changes, I think that I see JackelwarePrintProblem.thumb.jpg.84f1b6dfadbd8d0cc715801d94b02b90.jpgwhy... there's a curious and large difference between the outline of the model and it's actual position.  This leads to a large gap between the support and the model.  This gap seems to be something along the lines of the thickness of the raft.

    Load the model and set Cura up to slice.  Then use the "File | Save Project" command and post the 3mf file here.  Someone will take a look.  In the meantime you can open that file in something like MS 3D Builder and check it for errors.  A lot of those types of models have errors due to the way they are created (from a cartoon / magazine or scanned).

    @MariMakes is a fan of miniatures and might have some info.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
