Supports messing up Model

Posted · Supports messing up Model

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

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
