Gap in Breakaway

Recommended Posts

Posted · Gap in Breakaway

Hi 

I write here because I'm using Breakaway and I can't remove the gap between the TPU and Breakaway (picture). As a result, The surface is not enough good. 

I hope you can help me

Thanks

That's a parameter called 'Support Z Distance', if I'm not mistaken. You can set it to 0 to have the Breakaway and TPU stick together, check in layer view to make sure. However, be warned that this may make it extremely difficult to remove the Breakaway without damaging the TPU, since they'll bond quite tightly.

My first option was that but it doesn't worked. Putting 0mm as a Support Z distance it still have a gap. As a consecuence the surface is not as flat as I espected.

Try with 'Support Roof Line Distance' at a small value like 0.01. Since it's smaller than your printing profile, it should have virtually the same effect as having a 0 distance.
