Illogical and faulty automatic support placement - workaround?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Illogical and faulty automatic support placement - workaround?

Hi guys,

For my current model the automatic support is badly placed by the algorithm since it misses a few layers and then believes it can just print more support onto thin air.

1st support layers are put down correctly.

Support is no longer added.

Support is laid down onto thin air - nothing was printed underneath.

Support keeps being added. The gap in support is visible.

What's going on here? How can I work around this?

All the best
