.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"

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
