Manual adjustment of internal support

Recommended Posts

Posted · Manual adjustment of internal support

I found the percent adjustment for internal support and set for 20 which helps for my needs. Still the vertical; walls are quite thick and hard to clean out to the drawn size. I've got a mini circuit board and battery going inside my printed part. Is there a manual setting I am missing? By the way the Utilimaker Cura is fantastic !!!Orange1.thumb.jpg.939b4b9679f85b36a6381b5005b5e729.jpg

That’s not the purpose of infill.

 

Your model should have the cutout for the electronics designed in so that the space is never printed in the first place.

You know the software builds a support under a cutout to support the building of a ceiling over the area. I've reduced the heat setting and the thickness of the build which allows cleaning out the areas much easier. Im not sure how accurate the heat setting actually is from the sensor coming back from the hot end.

That doesn’t look like support to me. That looks like infill, or “internal support”. I cannot tell from your picture, but would it be possible to print it with the cavity facing up? Or even put it on a side, and have the edges of the cavity at an angle so they don’t need support?

 

Anyway, just ideas.
