Support Settings 15.04

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am printing a working model in ABS with 1.75 filament and .4 nozzle and a layer height of 1.5mm...... we have good adhesion and the setting we are using are giving us good lamination and final result.

 

The question is support settings:

When using the stock settings - Overhang 60, fill 15%, distance x/y .7mm, distance .15mm.

But the supports are sticking to well both on the x/y distance and the distance. The z axis support is welded to the modle and the x/y support is stck to the walls as well.

How do you reduce the width and height (i am not sure if i add or subtract to the .7 and .15mm) and could you suggest a good setting to try with my 1.5mm layer height?
