Problem (imho) with STL loading in 2.4

Recommended Posts

a question/complaint/remark whatever, but I don't like it :(.

I don't complain that often, but I guess this is something for HQ to look into.

Loading the same stl in 2.4 and 15.04.5 gives a difference. manually added supports are not shown nore printed in 2.4. What happened here?

In the meantime, I try to upload the stl somewhere...

Inserted a youmagine link, notice the 3d view showing the supports

Hi Kees,

What is the wall thickness of the manually added support? Is it 0.4mm? In that case in Cura 1.5.4 changing the line width to 0.39 was good enough in 1.5.4 but in 2.4 it is not. In 2.4 you need to change the nozzle size to 0.38 to get walls of 0.4mm.

I regulary use objects with 0.4mm lines.

Regards,

Eric

I checked the Thickness it's 0.7mm so should be no problem.

The thickness problem could show after slicing, but until now never happened in solid view..

Well, Cura already died for your sins; You don't have an active quality profile (as visible from not having a name in the profile dropdown)  which means something already went horribly wrong.

:( That's a minor detail ;) .

The values change with the profiles, My own profiles do show, the standard UM ones don't

    • "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.
