bird droppings -> Stützstruktur -> Verwenden von Pfeilern

Recommended Posts

If I select Stützstruktur -> verwenden von Pfeilern


select the experimental feature "Anpassschichten verwenden" then the bird droppings will be placed on the base-plate, without touching the model. Here a picture:


deactivating the feature: "Anpassschichten verwenden" will remove the droppings. The BIRD I have never seen :o)

It is now!


This is a known bug right now. See also https://github.com/Ultimaker/CuraEngine/issues/544

It's caused (as far as we know) by the Support Use Towers setting in combination with Support Horizontal Expansion. The support area is still passed down to lower layers but it's too slim to print. It should get removed in that case but it isn't. Eventually it somehow becomes wider again (maybe due to the towers?) and then it can be printed again.

      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.
