Unexpected support towers from Cura

Recommended Posts

Hello UM community!

I get these weird tiny support towers overlapping my normal support, see attached image. The problem with these are that the retraction goes crazy and flattens my filament to the point where it causes under extrusion and eventually grinding. For now I turned off retraction but then I get stringing instead.

I haven't been able to find any setting in cura that affects this. Has anyone else had this problem?

Best regards,

Vilhelm

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
