How to config Infill support hold ?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the project file. Yes, Cura will not add support under the bottom of those cylindrical shapes so it is not really printable at the moment. You have 2 obvious options. Either increase the infill density (maybe use another pattern) so that the cylinders do touch the infill. Or, better still, continue the cylinders down to the bottom of the part (that's what I would do).

Actually, I forgot, you can set the skin expand distance to 10 or more and it will span the gap.

Cura next version can support or fix problem ?


I do not think so as the model can so easily be fixed (by extending the cylinders to the bottom).

    • "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.
