Tree Support Issues

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to use tree supports and it is not working out so well it seems that Cura is trying to have normal supports and tree supports at the same time. Anyone find a work around for this? Or am I the only one? Also when I added Tree Supports to a benchy it had supports in mid-air. Thanks for any help :)

Uncheck "generate supports".

 

Note the support angle setting from the standard supports applies to the tree supports generated even though the options are in different sections.

AbeFM, confirming this is correct.

 

I suppose it's non-intuitive that you should do one but not the other.
 

Perhaps in future versions, the tree support option should be a child of general supports to ensure exclusivity?

 

Thanks!

I'm about 4 hours in to a print w/ tree mode now.  Confirming it does work with the generate support unchecked.

One thing I've never figured out in cura is how to move the camera up/down once you select a view so I never get a good look at what I'm printing like I really want to.  Another topic altogether lol

@csmicfool: hold the shift key on your keyboard while right-mouse-dragging.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
