Cura 3.1.1 strange support artifacts

Recommended Posts

Hello

I'm learning using Cura, I'm on MAC and I'm trying to slice a multicopter frame which has many hanging parts so it needs a lot of support.

I configured Cura so it generates support but there is a strange thing occurring

In areas without hanging parts Cura generates a lot of support small islands, so my printer moves a lot around without need.

This happens for 5/6 layers (0,15mm layer height)

Why is this happening?

I thought it was a damaged stl file, but I passed it trough netfabb online repair tool and nothing changes..

 

Here is a snapshot

Thanks

    • "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.
