[Cura 3.6] Floating supports at layer heights less than .1

Recommended Posts

Using Cura 3.6, Anycubic i3 Mega printer, default settings (still learning) and when attempting to slice https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1711097 (the STL with 'fixed' in the name) I noticed that if I selected the .06 layer height I started getting supports that print in the air and missing areas in the object adjacent to those supports.image.png.d739d7c2974482960df338dffcf70790.png 

 


Looks like I just happened to be at a rotation to cause it as rotating the design makes the problem go away.  Attached a file with a rotation that demonstrates the issue.

 

Thanks

Update title format to match what seems to be the standard way to list the version

    • "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.
