Interface calculation in cura

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have some questions/ concerns about how interface material is generated in Cura. What it looks like right now is that the interface is generated at a constant distance in z off of the overhanging structure. Here is a picture of what I mean.

When my interface layer thickness decreases to something around 0.5mm, the support interface completely disappears on shallow angles.

Here is a link to the part I'm using. Let me know if this all makes sense.

    • "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.
