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

Recommended Posts

Hello.

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.

    • "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.
