Is it possible to get a whole solid first layer

by handsome1987

I hope someone can tell me if this is possible:

In the attachments you will find 2 screenhots one from cura and one from simplify3d.
As you can see with cura the first layer of the print is cut in pieces where on simplify3d the first layer is a whole solid layer.
Can anyone tell me if this is also possible with cura?

Raft vs Brim

by mmccaugh

OK I am trying to figure out what is wrong here, and I have to assume it is a setting after upgrading that I am missing somewhere.

Simple issue is when I use a Raft for platform adhesion it works maybe 50% of the time, the other 50 it curls and pops off. When using a Brim however the models stick VERY well (too well), to the point I feel like I have to chisel it off.

I feel like the issue here is something in my raft settings, as one if way too weak (Raft), and one has a damned gorilla grip on my platform.. What I want is in the middle and I think the answer is with the raft but with different settings..

Any advice here?

Please Help!!

by anv3d

As you can see, in the cylindrical part, there are 2 shells on the inside and outside, and it does infill in the middle. When it does that, my printer vibrates, and it caused a screw on my spool to come loose, jamming my spool. I want to fix this, so I tried increasing the shell count/thickness, but it only increased the shell on other parts of the model, and the cylindrical parts stayed the same. I want the cylindrical part to have another shell to fill it in. Does anyone know how to fix this?
