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

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
