Support Artefacts

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Since I didn't found anytihg regarding this i thought i may ask.

If anyone already created a topic adressing this you may put a Link here and this could be Closed.

 

My problem is that there is Support generated where it is complete and utter nonsense

As  you see i want the Holes to be supported because i like to Print Nylon as Hot and Fast as it gets in order to get strong Parts.

If they warp a bit its not that bad because i machine them anyway.

But somehow these "Support Towers" appear.

They are annoying because i use Z-Hop and Retraction with Combing off in order to prevent the Printhead from knocking the parts off the Buildplate..... as you may know Nylon could be a bit tricky when it comes to thick walls.

Anyway the Printer does a lot of extra Z-Hopping and Retraction in order to print the usless towers.

As we all Know to much retraction is not the best thing to have.

Any Idea?

Thanks in Advance.

Flo

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
