Angled supports in CURA and increase or grow support in X and Y axes.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Angled supports in CURA and increase or grow support in X and Y axes.

Could the CURA software add the capability to adjust the angle of the supports. Axis around Z

Problem: When printing tall objects will small build plate connection and small angle of overhangs, the support structure should have the ability to adjust "normal" to the surface as well as go perpendicular. Printing in Z is advantages for some printers and types of geometry., such as wings or other foils. I typically have to build my supports into a model in CAD. So increasing support in X and Y is axis creates support for lateral bracing to oppose Jerk etc.

    • "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.
