tree support keeps getting hit

Recommended Posts

if i print a model with tree support enabled my Ender 3 keeps hitting the support if it goes from the model to the next layer. (detailed description at the end of this post)

i'm a forgetting a setting or is something else happening?

 

stats and settings:

running version 3.6.0 with no plugins.

i have "avoid printed parts when traveling" and "avoid support when traveling" enabled

and a "travel avoid distance" of 1.5 mm

 

combing mode = all (don't know if that matters)

 

if a is the outer wall of the support 

b is the inner wall of the support

and M is the model

_a_b_M_

 

the layers start printing at a goes trough b stops at a.

goes from a around the supports to M.

prints M goes to a again but in a direct line (M to a shortest path) hitting the supports

    • "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.
