Support material starting at layer 7

Recommended Posts

Posted · Support material starting at layer 7

Hi All,


I have been having trouble with a print. I have done many prints and never seen this problem before.

When I slice the model with Cura 4.2.1 some of the support material doesn't start printing until layer 7. This means that the support material doesn't form properly. I have tried to modify the model to remove the need for support material but this just moves the problem to another area of the print. I am confident that this is not an issue with the printer but with Cura. I am not having this issue with other prints.

Can anyone suggest where I am going wrong.


Thank you

Michael Lycett
