Best PLA support settings in Cura for UM3

Recommended Posts

Posted · Best PLA support settings in Cura for UM3

Hello UM community,

Since PVA is so expensive, I've been trying to get regular prints done with only PLA support like in regular one extruder head printers.

Unfortunately, I'm having trouble getting the settings right so that the support woks well AND comes off easy. It seems no matter how much distance I set between the support and the print, it will still stick to the main body and be impossible to clean off.

Does anyone have tips on how they are able to set the support to come off easy with few marks? I'm used to simplify 3D which is an absolute breeze.

Thanks!

In the latest Cura i like to use the support interface (or roof) and set it to concentric and something like 60%, it's not perfect but for me it works quite nicely, also the zigzag pattern for supports is quite easy to take off (won't be as clean as pva but works)
