Hi new to the forums and new to printing,
I'm printing out CT scans of human vertebra, and I'm using support structures in Cura to stabilize the print. The problem I'm running into is that when I go to pull of the supports they mostly come off, but they leave a bit of material where they were attached. It's not too bad, but I thought I'd come to the forums to see if anyone had some ideas for optimization. Unfortunately I don't have pictures on me right now, but here are the settings I've been using.
- Start off with Cura set to basic - Ultiprint, than switch to full settings (so most settings are those of Ultiprint), then I make the following adjustments to those settings:
- Layer height = .1
- Shell thickness = 1.2
- Bottom/Top thickness = .6
- Fill density = 20
- Print speed = 20
- Support Data = touching build plate, lines, overhang angle = 40
- Raft turned on
- initial layer thickness = .3
- Minimal layer time = 20
- Combine everything type A turned off
Additionally, I'm using blue 2.75mm PLA ultimaker filament, the .4 nozzle, and the print temperature set 185F. Like I said, the problem isn't too bad, but I'm hoping that the experts here have some tips and tricks up their sleeves.
