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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
