hangovers and bridges

Recommended Posts

Posted · hangovers and bridges

Hi all!

I am rather disappointed because the cura slicer does not look ahead, as it seems.

There could be some quite effective tricks to build overhangs and bridges

if only the slicer would look some layers ahead.

ideas:

- print the overhang from inside to outside

(the overhang starts with a "shell" at its bottom, this is

100% filled. if printed from inside to outside then the

overhang would come out much better -

but the slicer would have to make localized decisions

about what is the local inner side and what is the

local outer side)

- print small partly supports below the bridge and

below the overhang

these tiny supports would then be built like a small

overhang and it would start some 10 layers below

these local supports would not reach out for the

entire width of the bridge but for about more than

half of its spread - maybe one third at the right

post and one third at the left post.

the slicer would then look some layers ahead ...

is there already a branch of cura that implements

these ideas ?

thanks

Gerald
