Base Height
« on: December 09, 2014, 07:04:55 PM »
I have asked the following question before and disappointed by the support with no answer...

I don't have "Base Height" here!
In the pdf manual file "Base Height" exists on the right hand side of the "Z Resolution" but on the software there is not such a thing!

Please help I wan to reduce the raft thickness

It looks like they may have removed the option in an update to the software, as you have noticed the picture in the manual is different from the current UI.

It's possible that the fuction has become obsolete because the printer builds only the amount of raft that is necessary and minimising it further could cause the job to fail.

There is an option for "Support - Dense: This represents how many layers of ‘solid’ (dense) material form part of the support structure directly beneath the model. Default = 3 layers" im not sure if lowering this will get the outcome you desire, you can only lower it by one layer so it wont make much of a difference.

Sorry if this wasn't the answer you were looking for.

I am wondering the same thing.  I hope that this does not indicate that the guys at 3Dprintingsystems have lost interest in providing support :-(
