Determine where Cura puts PVA support material

Recommended Posts

Posted · Determine where Cura puts PVA support material

Hello everybody,

I am more or less new to the 3D printing world.

I would like to know if there is any chance to determine where Cura puts PVA support on my Ultimaker 3.

Background is, I want to have a certain section printed without support, but the rest of the modell should be printed with support.

Additionally, if there is no solution in Cura, which software could I use instead?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Its a bit tricky but you can do it in cura.

What you need to do is add a piece in your design as a separate mesh where you don't want the infill.

Import both models into cura and select the model for the support replacement. Then select per object settings. Select: Wall thickness, top/bottom thickness and infill. Set all of those to 0.

Merge both models and you will now have no support in that area.
