How to print object not touching buildplate

Posted · How to print object not touching buildplate

HI, I want to join two models on Cura to print, but I would need for one of them not to touch the buildplate. So far every time I open something on Cura it is locked to the buildplate, unlike Chitubox for example, where you can lift the object for printing. I was wondering if there is something I can do directly through cura before looking into modifying the files. 

Thanks

    I floated models by CAD before, too. I can lift them now when I turn off " Automatically drop models to the build plate" switch by setting of Cura.

    Hey @gisireji,

     

    This report reminds me of https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/15179

    Can you try the following:

     

    1. Turn off "Generate Support".

    2. Go to the Mesh Fixes settings and turn off "Remove Empty First Layers".

    3. Turn on "Generate Support"

     

    I believe it's resolved with the next release with this fix: https://github.com/Ultimaker/CuraEngine/commit/3b1f2e612534f0ed05e022159a5308a6d2c30479
