Support not appearing on first layer

Recommended Posts

Posted · Support not appearing on first layer

Hi guys,

I'm having trouble with my supports. Cura lays the brim and external supports on the first layer, but then the internal support doesn't appear until layer 2 causing it to print incorrectly. How can I get around this as I've spent the last couple of hours looking and can't find a solution in the settings?

Cura 2.3.0

Thanks in advance for your help

Found a solution myself moments after posting this. I figured if i put brim on the inside too then the supports could print on top of that. It turns out that support would then print on top of that on layer 1 anyway.

Weird, maybe a bug in the software?

I'm having that problem as well. Raft also produces supports on the object's first printable layer. But otherwise I believe its a bug in the software.
