Ooze shield does not print until after raft is complete

Wed Aug 08, 2018 4:05 pm

When I try to print a model with support, raft, and ooze shield the ooze shield does not print until after all the raft layers are complete. This by itself wouldn't be a problem except the ooze shield prints outside of the raft, not on the raft. This of course fails because we're already several layers above the bed surface and all you get is air printing.

- Raft and model are PLA (primary head)
- Support is Polysmooth PVB (secondary head)
- Ooze shield is both heads, 2mm from model -- which should include the raft, right?

If I go layer by later in the print preview, it is very clear the ooze shield isn't printed until layer 5, and then outside the bounds of the raft.

I believe I figured out what the problem is: In order for the raft to have the ooze shield printed on top of it (instead of beyond its bounds) the raft has to be made wide enough to encompass the ooze shield. There's a raft setting that allows you to expand ways from the model. Expand it enough to include the distance of the ooze shield.
