Posted (edited) · [Cura 3.6] Floating supports at layer heights less than .1

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
