I am trying to print the following object with PLA+PVA on my Ultimaker 3 and cannot get Cura (v3.0.4) to generate any acceptable support structures.
It seems to me that none of the support algorithms take into consideration that I am using PVA that will totally dissolve and go away. I have played with some of the "advanced" options support pattern, etc. but still no luck.
Is Ultimaker looking into 'supports' with PVA in mind?
In the meantime does anyone have any suggestions?
Ok.....I see what happened. Go to your support area, then click on the gear next to the down arrow. It will open up the settings dialogue box. Check all the boxes next to support. This will open up a lot of things that are normally hidden. The biggest difference I can see is that I put my support horizontal expansion on 0.25. It defaults to 3mm. This will give you a whole buncha support structure all around the object. This is a useful item to play with as sometimes, it does need the extra expan
