    All my prints that i have done with rafts have come out significantly better except for the fact that the part sticks to the raft. They are completely joined together and cannot be separated without causing damage to the part.

    Air gap i have tried from 0.2 - 0.4 mm
    Fill density, ive tried from 50-90% with the same results.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    It is just a function of the software raft algorithm. Generally speaking avoid that when you possibly can (none of them are wonderful on rafts) but some are worse than others.

    @Peter Krska has had good luck removing rafts. It's been pretty hit or miss for me.
