Z Distance Issues, Soluble Supports

Recommended Posts


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.

    • "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.
