Delete useless support

Recommended Posts

Posted · Delete useless support

I'm using Cura 3.6.0

I wonder if it is possible to eliminate the useless support generated and leave the support only in the hole. Cura generated a support starting from plate but it is useless

You can try if you can remove the support with the support blocker in the left menu.

Or try to play with the setting "Support Horizontal Expansion" if it helps.

I think what op is seeing is a regression in Cura 3.6 that has been reported before; supports extending all the way to the buildplate instead of stopping on the first upward facing mesh it encounters.

Thank you for your suggestion. I have already tried the "Support Blocker" but with any result. And I tried to set "Support Horizontal Expansion" to 0 and any positive result. Also tried to disable "general Support" then add a cube, put it in my hole and print it as a support. But also in this case the support was starting from plane.

It is not a big problem, just a waste of time in printig.

@ahoeben. OK I think you properly descibed the trouble. And I did not find a way to set it. I can select only support from Buildplane and Everywere.

Solved.  I changed value of Support Horizontal expansion from 0.2 to 0.0

I'm now using version 4.0
