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?

    • "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.
