One pass / slim line for integrated support structure?

Recommended Posts

Posted · One pass / slim line for integrated support structure?

I printed a huge part with a bended bottom and testest different options for automatic generadet support in CURA.

Unfortunately none of the options worked for me. Took to much time, was much to strong and hardy removable...

So I decided to construct the support in the CAD model.

CURA now recognises walls and each support line is printed with a double line. I tried to adjust nozzle and wall sizes, but nothing helps.

To save more time (and material) it would be great, if there was a chance to make CURA print the support lines as thin as it prints it's own generated support.

Is there a way to achieve this?

Here is the part which I am printing with the constructed support:
