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?
