Unexpected support towers from Cura

Posted · Unexpected support towers from Cura

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
