Support strukture missing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Support strukture missing

I think i found a bug where the slicer does not prepare all the needed support.

As you can see in the picture there is support but it is missing for some parts. The red long line is a overhang withoud support strukture. What can I do to print it anyway?

turn your model 90 degrees so the supports are on the other axis. It should help

 

Thanks for suggestion. I think that would work but this way stability of the structure would decrease. I just printed it with the missing support and it worked somehow :D Not good - it's hanging like a rope bridge - but I'm surprised it worked at all! See the picture:

Anyway can we get this bug fixed?

I think what pm_dude meant was to rotate it around the z-axis, not so that it's standing on its side. The support is always drawn in the same direction so by twisting the model around you change how it rests on top of the support. See here:

Some work is being done to improve support in the new generation of cura. I doubt any of that will be back ported to legacy cura.
