Cura not taking support down to the base, Why?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura not taking support down to the base, Why?

I am printing a part, but a horizontal bar is not supported correctly. Why?


Using Cura 4.1.0


Model and Slice images



The cylinder comes out from the vertical wall. A part of a support is generated on the base and part of a support comes down from the cylinder, but they are not connected. Does anybody know why?


Thank you in advance

    Looks like a bug.  You might want to create the support for that cylinder in CAD instead of relying on cura to create the support.  You only have to support the end of the cylinder.  Not the entire length.  so you could add a little post there under the end of that cylinder.
