Standing Baby Groot -- fingers are not supported

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Standing Baby Groot -- fingers are not supported

groot_w_stand.stlI am trying to print a standing baby groot.  Unfortunately, Cura does not generate supports for the fingers on the left hand.  I tried using a separate box with "per-model" support settings, but Cura still will not generate supports for the fingers regardless of the angle setting.  I have the latest Cura 4.3 slicer.  See attached. 

 

Thank you for your help!

Have you tried lowering the "minimum support area" setting to 0?

Thank you for the suggestion.  Unfortunately, it does not work.  This setting causes the support to be a single line up to the finger tip.  My printer is not able to print a single line straight up since the bed moves.

 

I am going to use the "Custom Supports" add-in that was recommended by a YouTuber called "Chep".  Wish me luck!

You can also try to increase the "Support Join Distance". Alternatively you can try the "Support Horizontal Expansion", but that would give you more support everywhere.
