Z Distance Issues, Soluble Supports


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Z Distance Issues, Soluble Supports


This is not the first time I've had this issue - I thought I've posted it before but can't find it.


Can someone tell me how to get my supports to print on the object instead of floating in free air?



Edit: This is not the first time I brought this  up. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE COMMENT? I'm over a month into this problem and I would really appreciate some guidance.

    Note that I tried this with Z overirdes x/y and the other way around, even with "minimum support distance" set to a small or 0 value, I get the same behavior.

    With all distances set to 0 you get support that touches but lose the ability to keep vertical supports off  your part.

    Does anyone else have a copy of the CURA software?


    If you do, could you slice something with dual materials and the contact distance set to 0 and let me know if you see that gap or not?

        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.
