Cura bug? Per Model Settings 3.6 and 4.0 Beta

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura bug? Per Model Settings 3.6 and 4.0 Beta

When I use the Per Model Settings to create custom support areas, Cura also adds cuts and solid infill at the intersections. I've tested this in 3.6 and 4.0 on two different computers, with the exact same result. I think it's a bug, but perhaps I'm not setting this up correctly?


I've recreated this situation with simple cubes to demonstrate.


Here are my steps:
1) Import model to be printed and cube to be used as custom support volume

2) Position and scale cube to encompass area that requires support

3) Set cube'sPer Model Settings to Modify Settings For Overlap With Other Models

4) Add and activate Generate Support and Support Overhang Angle

5) Click Prepare


Unfortunately, this results in a bad surface, a waste of filament, and a huge increase in my print times.


I'd appreciate any help. Thank you!
