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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
