Post by Roberts_Clif » August 9th, 2018, 9:22 am

Today I an try to learn about the raft settings using Cura 15.04.6.

Would like to know if anyone has information as to what the best settings would be for a raft.
Lets say Best adhesion, easiest part removal and smoothest model bottom layer as examples or am I overthinking this.

I believe that Only one style raft is necessary, but could be wrong do I need a different layer height raft for different layer height projects.

Ugh, that is such an old version. Why not use Cura 3.4.1 (or at least something far more recent)? There has been major improvements all around.

Yea this could be true, though it is tons easier to setup and learn without something else causing print errors.

Then changes can be incorporated into the Newer versions of Cura 3.4.1 or vise versa.
