I want to know whether a raft can be re-used for for printing a part.

Have you tried this?  Please share...

Don't mind but why are you even using rafts? For that classy printing quality, you should print with hairspray on glass. Rafts ruin the surface quality and they are just waste plastic. I would be happy to print anything raftless. You should let it go. Hope this helps, let me know, thanks.

perhaps, rafts cannot be re-used. Even you should not think of using a raft again.

I can share my view. Rafts don't use too much plastic. Therefore, you cannot save much re-using a raft. So, use new rafts so that the print will be fresh and good in quality.
