Problem with Tree Support and specific print settings


Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem with Tree Support and specific print settings

Hello together,

I have a problem with the tree support in Cura 4.0.0. It seems that it has something to do with the print-profiles that I have downloaded from prusa-website for my orig. prusa i3 mk3s.


If I use one of the Cura-default print settings, the tree support is generated just fine. But first let me describe what happens:  


With the settings/profiles downloaded for the original Prusa MK3S (I have installed/imported them by following the instructions) the tree support is adding some additional support lines (looks like zigzag-pattern) onto the tree support. These lines are also connected to the builded part itself what makes it very difficult to remove it without damaging the part. Please see the attached pictures to see what I mean.

The Anycubic pictures are showing how it should look like.

I have tried to compare the support settings from the anycubic (I picked this one just as an example) to the settings from the prusa, but I cannot find an option that effects this lines.



At the time when I took the pictures, I was thinking that it has something to do with the printer-settings. That's why I tested it with an other printer in cura. Later I found out, that I could just use one of the default print settings (like "fine 0.15mm") instead of changing the printer. That's why I assume that it is an option, that I am not aware of within the print-settings. I have search very long, but did not find anything.


Haver anyone faced this issue before or has an idea what setting I have to change to solve it?



best regards

    I am not sure if the google-translator translated it correct for me. The only option, that sounds a little bitte like it is called "Infill support". but as you can see on the pictures, it does not have any effect.

    Awesome - that fixed the problem. Thank you very much!


    I did not expect it to have any impact as the general support option was switched off.



    Best regards

      • 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
