  1. That definitely helped the bottom stick better.but the top is still very much an issue. I think that the problem is very much exacerbated by the delicate footing and shape that the snap-fixture forms on top of the support. I have since tuned the printer more effectively and have not had this problem on any but this model. The problem is that there are two of the same fictures on the part, and they're 90 degrees apart. The problem is inescapable! And/or, the part may just need a little redesigning. Is Greg Valiant a reference to Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Isn't that the name of the P.I.'s murdere
  2. Yeah. I've been messing with what you've described. I've been able to strategically avoid the problem. I'm realizing that the part featured in my post is apparently a particularly difficult one to properly support. The towers that cura seems to want to make are unstable enough already, but as you can see by looking at the tower on the right, its basically printed on nothing. THAT is the one that gets knocked over. Either that, or it turns the print misses the start of the support completely and turns the whole layer into spaghetti (mild exaggeration)
  3. Cura was placing floating supports that were not rooted or crested in contact with my model. Where they were supposed to meet with the raft, they made contact fine. Where they were supposed to make contact with the model, there was a gap. By reducing Z bottom-distance and Z-top distance to 0, I've managed to get the support immediately adjacent to the part, but never quite connected to it. Tree supports do the same thing - not connected to the part. I've returned Cura to "factory settings", and I've even deleted and re-installed cura. Same problem. I'm not sure what else to try? I'

  5. I'm reasonably new to 3D printing, and have been using Cura as a slicer the whole time. It has worked beautifully up until recently. Upon slicing my files, those supports which are immediately above the raft/print bed will be appropriately rooted and stable, but the supports which would need to be rooted directly on the part are instead floating. I significantly altered print settings (support z-distance=0, Z overrides XY priority) and managed to get the support structure and the part into contact, but so barely that the supports inevitably fall off while being printed. Similarly, the undersid
