Support quality question

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Wondering why supports don't print with the same integrity of the main body of a print.  You can see in this image below, the supports, the vertical structures between the left and right extents, are wavy.  They move to the left, then back to the right near the top.  The printer is in an enclosure, so can't imaging that the environment is affecting the direction.

Wondering if there isn't something more fundamental about 3D printing that makes supports more susceptible.  I have seen this quite a bit over the past year or more...just now getting around to asking about it.

    • "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.
