Ideamaker 3.1.7 Impossible to print with raft

Postby Lorenzo » Mon Jul 09, 2018 11:44 am

Al ready created a support ticket, but wanted to open up the discussion here as well. When I get a fix, i'll post it here too.

It seems impossible to create Gcode with a raft in 3.1.7. Instead of a raft, it prints a brim. No matter what I do, it always reverts to brim instead of raft.

What did I check?
* No group or layer settings overriding the raft
* Raft only was selected in the main template and was not changed in the advanced settings
* Ideamaker preview also shows a brim, not a raft.
* Tried reinstalling the software
* Made a completely new template; same result

Is anyone else experiencing the same problem?

Kind regards,

Lorenzo

May I ask your .data file to take a look?

Hello Vicky,

I already sent the data and gcode file for one of my prints to Rachel on the 12th of july. The data and Gcode file both say it should be printed with a brim, but I can assure you that the profile I'm using for slicing says raft and the brim options are even greyed out. When I do a print preview in Ideamaker, I see it is going to print a brim instead of a raft. No matter what I do, it always prints with the rim instead of the raft.

This doesn't only happen with this particular file, but any file I'm slicing.

Kind regards,

Lorenzo

I sliced a cube for your with Raft enabled in ideaMaker 3.1.7.
Print the first several layers to see whether the Raft has been printed properly.
If so, import the .data file attached together into ideaMaker as a new slicing profile. And slice a model with this profile to see whether you can get Raft this time or not.
