Breakaway not breaking away

Pretty much what the title implicates, the layers of Breakaway stick much better to the ABS than they do to themselves. Making removal of the supports, if at all possible, extremely difficult.

What can I change to make the ABS-Breakaway bond weaker in future prints? What techniques would help to remove the Breakaway from recent prints?

    You can change the support Z distance. Increasing this will make the gap bigger between the support and the ABS. You can also reduce the interface density so not as much breakaway is in contact with the ABS.

    Just note that changing these too much will reduce the appearance of your bottom surface.

    I use some small electronics cutters to lift the thin strands off the prints.

    Are the support areas your trying to remove flat areas or quite complex shapes?
