Tree support dots?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Tree support dots?



I've never seen this before using 3.6 and I've been using tree supports for a bit. I'm currently using Cura 4.0. Printing a hollow object, Cura is putting these small "nubbins" on the print bed. The nubs around the perimeter are there to support a small chamfer. I'm not sure why Cura is putting the nubbins inside the middle rectangular section. they are there regardless of which slicing tolerance I choose.They increase or decrease as the tree support branch distance is raised and lowered. I'd like to get rid of them. Thoughts? Is the issue specific to 4.0?

    Downgraded to Cura 3.6 and the issue persists. I think it has something to do with the model, but I've already run a Netfabb repair on it. It's manifold so...I'm not sure what else could be going on.

    Someone else had this issue in 3.2.1

    I suspect that last one is a different (but perhaps related) issue; we've since solved the 'tree support starts in air' problem.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
