Placing of part above the print board

Post by ming » Sun Mar 23, 2014 12:03 am

If i place a part 10mm above the perf board will it automatically lower it down during printing till a point or face hits the print surface ?

If i have to lower it down
a) should the part be touching the print surface ?
b) have some space in between (can only control within a mm)

any vertical offset above or below the platform is ignored, and the software always sets the lowest part of the object to the platform base. It was on a wish list somelong time ago to fix this, so that one could start a print, on top of another, or slice a print so it did not print anyqthing shown below the platform, so far this has not been implemented
cheers
