Posted · Cura not allowing more than 3 bottom layers

Using Cura v5.2.1, and I have "Layer Height" set to 0.2mm and "Bottom Thickness" set to 1.0mm.  Cura correctly calculates that I should have 5 "Bottom Layers".  However, when I slice it, only 3 bottom layers are laid down before my infill starts.  This doesn't happen with the top, where there are correctly 5 Top Layers put down.  The "Bottom Layers" says it can be affected by the following settings and i've included what I have them set to...  not seeing why my solid bottom layers (lines) is stopping after the 3rd layer...help!? 🙂

  1. Bottom Thickness = 1.0mm
  2. Spiralize Outer Coutour = off
  3. Infill Density = 20%
  4. Layer Height = 0.2mm

    Looks like the issue is a different setting overriding that value.


    Your "initial bottom layers" is set to 3, this is why you see that result.

    The setting you adjusted is any bottom layers not touching the build surface.
