Hello Comunity,

I am trying to print a tea spoon with the small edge to the bed to cause a smoother spoon area.

the thin edge is braking but I won`t make it thicker.

I like to give a general Offset of model to the bed.. so i translatet it 5mm in Z-direction and deactivated "Drop-Down-Model"

But when slicing it drops down the model anyway 😞

anyone can help me?

    See the setting "Remove empty layers".


    Interestingly, this is the fourth or so post I see about this in a single week, and this has not changed since Cura 2. Why is "everybody" suddenly trying to do this?

    Thanks for response. This was the setting I was looking for.


    I needed it to avoid a thin curved survace directly in contact with bed.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
