Bottom of chair not smooth

Recommended Posts

Posted · Bottom of chair not smooth

Hi I'm pretty new to 3d printing and I am currently using an Ultimaker 2.  I've been trying to work with supports to get this chair to have a smoother, higher quality bottom, but it doesn't seem to be working.  I've attached screenshots of the support settings as well as the CURA file.

 

Thanks!

You should show the chair in "layer view".  But it's going to be hard to get the bottom much better unless you get a UM3 and use PVA dissolvable support.

 

Another option is to print the chair in parts and glue them together after they are all printed.  Preferably use some kind of bump/hole combination to make gluing easier and stronger.

Ah thanks!  Didn't think of the parts part.  I managed to get it to look somewhat decent after realizing there was a whole other layer of support still stuck to the chair.  But in the future when I can afford it, I will try to get a dual nozzle printer with PVA support.
