Support prints several layers before 1st layer of model in Cura

Post by astroboy »

Hi All,

I hope someone can help. I have a Creality CR10S5 and am using Cura. I'm printing a large model that needs minimal support but when I add support in Cura, or even Simplify for that matter, Several layers of support print 1st and then it tries to print the model at the same height where it left of printing support. Obviously in the air above the bed! When I slice the model without support in both Cura and Simplify3d it prints normally with a nicely squished 1st layer. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

I have two of those machines.

Are you using the built in profile for the CR-10 S5 in Cura? And Simplify3d?

Is the printer stock?

Maybe a screenshot of the model and a screenshot of how the first layer looks in the slicer?

Is the model flat on the surface of the bed?
