Print sinks above support


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print sinks above support

The print above the support has sunken in to itself and has a bad finish. I used support interface to try and improve surface finish quality.

Is this just what i can expect from support of a curved surface?

All other setting are set to default.

    You should be able to get a lot better results then that. Printing in that orientation I would lift the part a bit higher so the support can build a more sturdy base. Did you see how good the interface was as it was printing? What was the z offset?
