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.

    • "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.
