Branch style support structures

Recommended Posts

Although not a slicer, MeshMixer can do this, However, MeshMixer is a utility for manipulating STLs including repairing and the addition of these types of supports. Its not a slicer. So the workflow is open in Meshmixer, add supports, do any other things like auto orient for best printablility and then save as a new STL. Then load in a slicer like Cura and examine the layers to see if the support is going to print correctly. If not reopen and meshmixer and repeat.

So not the easiest but it will do it...

    • 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.
