Support for higher angle overhangs needed.

Recommended Posts

I decided to give Cura a whirl again and I'm currently using 13.06.3 I'm very impressed with the recent improvements! However, l'm using support type "Everywhere" (needed for some overhangs that extend over topskins) and I need Cura to generate more support than it's currently generating. (The part doesn't print well.) Looking at the results in both Cura "Layer" mode and also Rep-Host, it seems Cura starts supporting overhang angles only once they reach about 60 degrees from vertical and I'm guessing I'll need something more like 45 degrees for my current project. Is there a way to set Cura to generate a more cautious support strategy?

    • 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.
