Tiny unnecessary support

Recommended Posts

Posted · Tiny unnecessary support

Hi Guys,

I have recently started a model that had alot of 90 degree angles, BUT most of them could easily be bridged, for some reason since upgrading my Cura, the grid support is over zealous and adds support even when the bridge is say 2mm. How can i stop this, its driving me nuts. I just want support when there is no bridge or the gap is say 1CM

Just a note to say i found that, but man is that slow and inefficient. I was hoping there is a setting which i can tweak so its less aggressive.

Choose a different support fill or percentage then or, try moving the object or rotating it.

I have tried a few different ones and they all do it.

 

This is teh best way for it to be up. When you say percentage what setting do you mean?

 

See the pic below, those towers are filling a bridge that is maybe 2mm max. its pointless and a waste of time plus is a pain to tidy up.

It is actually called Support Density. My mistake. You can also adjust the Support x/y distance so that it will not fill in those little areas.
