Extruder goes up too far on 5th layer of print

Hello! As you can tell by the title, the extruder goes up too far on prints, but only on the 5th layer. Every other layer of the print is perfectly fine quality and height-wise, but upon starting the 5th layer, the extruder goes too far up. Something that may also possibly be related to this is that, if I try to print with no adhesion, the print starts off too high. I am able to provide any information on slicer, logs, or just about anything if needed. Thank you so much in advance for the help!


  • Sounds like you are printing with raft, right?
    If so, is 5th layer the first real layer of the print? Slicers have a setting to adjust distance last raft layer<->first model layer that you should adjust. You can check also in gcode the layer heights. I guess you will see that the distance in gcode is higher then between following layer, so just a setting in slicer then.
  • Sorry if you wasted any time on this, I solved the problem by turning off and on again the 3D printer.
