Support Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi @Pean,

thank you for your post.

I was wondering, could you perhaps describe your problem a little bit more accurately? I have difficulties to understand what you mean.

My initial thought is that your support density is too high.

This can simply be lowered in Cura. What version are you using?

Looking forward hearing from you,

Hi Pean,

Next to Recommended it says custom. This is where you can find settings to change the support density.

Scroll down in the settings on the right until you see Support.

In the field Support Density you can lower the number and it will become more sparse.

If you don't see support (density) there, click on the gear next to the '▼' and type in support density. Check the checkbox and click 'close'.

It should now appear in your list. Good luck!

    • "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.
