I am having trouble with Rafts. They are always bonded too tightly to the model. It looks to me like the model is being started on layer 1 with the raft, instead of layer 5 or whatever.. above the raft. I've messed with the airgap settings and see no differences. My printer is a M3D, and i'm using the default Cura slicer

Also, you might try another slicer and see if the problem persists.

After saying that, I just looked at Cura on my Mac, and noticed that there are two Airgap settings. One is just Airgap, and the other is First Layer Airgap. Adding the two together should yield the actual Airgap. Check to make sure that both of these are positive numbers (or zero). My default setting appears to be an Airgap of zero, and a First Layer Airgap of 0.5, with the comment that 0.2 works great for PLA.

Also, if you're using it via OctoPrint, then make sure the profile was generated by Cura 15.04 or older.
