Inner side of shell get rid of automatic gen. support material

Posted · Inner side of shell get rid of automatic gen. support material


I am using Cura now since 3 years and everything was fine, Till the Day I decided to print with a 1mm nozzle.

The change to the nozzle was fine too, but now one very usefull feature of Cura is making problems.

Cura creates on all regions with a inner or outer overhang with a specific angle additionaly support material on the immer side, not to get confused with the regular support structure, no I mean the material that will he printed additionaly to the perimeters, e.g if I print 3mm it prints 3 perimeters, but if this is an area with overhang it adds extra support material.

This was fine with a smaller nozzle, now with a 1mm nozzle the outer regions of the overhang starts warping, due to the additional material that Cura adds to the shell.

How Can I get rid off this Cura function, there is no setting anywhere in Cura to switch this off.

Best regards, Elysio.

    If the idea is to do a 1mm wall with no infill you can try spiralize maybe?

    Hi Didier.

    Thank you, I will give it a try, but the wall has to be massive.

    You know due to structural purpose.

    But this could be a workaround too.

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
