How to enable support?

Recommended Posts

Hmm. Not sure. Did you check the X/Y distance setting in the support options? Maybe try the newer beta cura where this code has been rewritten.

Personally I would probably add it in cad. A little vertical wall that goes under the tip of that overhang.

Thanks for your answer.

I tried the X/Y settings but didn´t get the proper results.

Similar to what you proposed, I added another very thin pad to the existing ones, jut to get the support under the model. I removed them after the print was done.

They were twice as long as the original ones and then it was OK.
