.16mm layer height support settings


Recommended Posts

Posted · .16mm layer height support settings

Currently using a .2mm z-gap with support interface for .2mm layer height with a .4mm nozzle and it works great. Supports work well and the finish is pretty decent. Using a .16mm z-gap with a .16mm layer height creates a real challenge when removing the support and going up to .32mm produces a crappy surface. Does anyone have good support settings for a .16mm layer height with a .4mm nozzle keeping in mind that the z-gap will always be rounded up to the next full layer height? TIA! Just to be 100% clear, the setting is not actually called the z-gap, it is the "Support Z Distance"
