Ultimaker not generating all the support

Recommended Posts

What settings are needed to get Ultimaker Cura to generate ALL of the support for this model?


There's plenty of support under the wings however the tail is unsupported.


Support settings used are the default for support. I played around a bit and it made zero difference so better to ask than manually attempt the billions of settings variations.

Ummm. Ok.




I used 3.6 and 3.4. Obviously the printer doesn't matter because no printer can print into thin air.


Given that you're saying that Cura is not expected to handle this...

Can you recommend other software then that does handle such a fundamental requirement of 3d printing?

    • "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.
