Manual adjustment of internal support

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.

      • 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
