How to enable support?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me with setting the support under this surface in Cura?

The surface is 2.5mm over the product and only 2mm above the buildplate, as shown in the picture.

The chosen option is Support touching buildplate.

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.
