Supports messing up Model

Recommended Posts

For some reason, when I print supports on any models, the layer that is in contact with the supports does not print well. In other words, it is not smooth and the print is of very bad quality, and sometimes the supports are hard to remove. It seems as if either the supports fuses into the model, or the layer does not cools properly. It only happens when I print supports, otherwise, when there are no supports touching the model, it prints just fine. Any help on what I'm doing wrong? I am using a Creality 10s with Cura 3.5

 

My settings are set as:

Layer Height - .06mm (Extra fine)

Top/Bottom Thickness - .6mm

Wall thickness - .8mm

Printing temperature - 200 degrees

Plate temp. - 60 degrees

Retraction enabled

Retraction distance - 5mm

Retraction speed - 40 mm/s

Support pattern - ZigZag

Support density - 10-15%

Support Z distance - .265mm

Support X/Y distance - .7mm

    • "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.
