Initial layer not starting untill layer 4, when printing on raft.
In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
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.
Your raft air gap is 0.30mm but your layer height is 0.12mm. Cura works to next common multiple and so .30mm is three layers. There is no air gap for support so it starts building right away while it takes another 3 layers (from layer 5 to layer 8 ) for the first bit of part to show up.
So set your air gap to "1 layer height" (NOT Initial Layer Height) and you should be good.
I learned something here. When you type an 8 and then a closed parentheses you get this guy 😎
