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

Recommended Posts

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

Rotated the same design so the sword was in a vertical, and now I get small bits of support in the middle of the at the end of the sword as well as floating around the outside towards the hilt (as well as other places). Project attached.
