  1. Hi all, sorry if posting twice not sure if i posted it in the right place the first time (copy paste time!) I'm a newbie to 3d printing and while i've had a few successful abeit simple (minimal supports) prints i've come to find that for reason i can't quite get cura to generate supports that touch the model, some supports do touch however they're few and far between, i've watched a few videos and messed around with rotation but it doesn't seem to want to connect the supports, can anyone lend a helping hand please. some details, I have a CS10S Pro using cura 4.0.0 I haven't added any extentions (not sure how or what i need) and my printer can print overhangs quite nicely (found that out when i tried a model and the floating supports floated onto the model, the model is https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3501926 with a slight modification to the arm for posing.

  2. I've been using hairspray and found it works really well at coverage, not sure about glue but it might start peeling after baking on the bed for awhile I would also recommend trying a lower temp as PETG doesn't need an a crazy amount more than PLA to start coming out (like i've found mine to come out around 180 ish but its instantly solidifies after leaving the nozzle) Take my advice with a pinch of salt as I've not been in the game for long, just giving my two cent.
  3. depends on the design and the quality of your printer, newbie printer (CS10S pro) but mine does fine at 100mm for easy prints (basic shapes and curves) but models I put it on 60mm and the details print fine
  4. What temp are you setting your nozzle at? I've got the same material red PETG and i've found it works but its very fussy. My settings are 235 nozzle, 60 for bed and i use hairspray for the glass bed for adhesion, also when you print do you hear a ticking sound from your feeds? maybe a tug on your filament line?
