Hello helpful community:)

Not the best result :(

I'm gonna guess decent, easily removed supports are possible in Cura and that it's just I who haven't learned how to do it, yet. Any tips, tricks, links, etc. would be MUCH appreciated.

 

TIA.

 

FYI, yes the object would be better printed "flat", but that surface is actually slightly curved all the way across. This is for a student of mine. I'm printing a flat one, now, and will share with him the issue and the "fix". That said, I still need to learn to do supports properly in Cure. BTW, I have been 3D printing intensely for 2 years, so, I have a decent level of understanding of things, including supports. In fact, I switched from Cura due to the issue of supports. But Cura has come a LONG way since then, and I like a lot of things about it, BUT if supports have not significantly improved, then I suspect my use cases for it will be limited. BTW, as a free slicer, Cura is a could choice for my students.

 

P.S. Uploaded hi-res image in hopes support setting would be legible. Embedded image seemed to open small. Perhaps it also appears as an attachment (as this is my first post here). So, I attached the image, too. I'd be happy to be straightened out so I can most efficiently participate in this community. TIA.

      • 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
