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?

    • "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.
