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

Recommended Posts

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.
