Support Z distance problem

Recommended Posts

Posted · Support Z distance problem

I'm trying to print this model which needs support in the upper part, the supports should be based on the model itself but even setting Z distance to 0 a significant gap remains between the model and the supports, not allowing me to print correctly... any idea what the problem could be?

Hi and welcome


I think you also need to adjust support X/Y value due to the slope.


My first example Z is set to zero and X/Y default Cura calculated value

Adjusting X/Y value will close the gap.


(I wouldnt go to zero gap though, usually difficult to remove support then)
