Cura 13.10 support difficult to remove

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 13.10 support difficult to remove

Hello

Cura 13.06 (I think) is what I was using before and the support material removed very easily. Might have taken longer to print though.

I have downloaded and installed the new Cura 13.10 (which I have noticed states the support prints faster and removes more easily) and when printing an object the support seems to be stronger than the object itself and when I go to remove it I end up breaking the piece.

Is there a setting I can change somewhere to make the support thinner/ less srtong/ easier to remove?

There are quite a few expert settings that effect support material. And the "everywhere" support has a bug where the Z distance (gap between support and object) does not work properly, making it difficult to remove. (Fix will be out on monday)

will the fix also resolve the stringing between object and support?

Thanks for the reply Daid.

That sounds about right, it seemed like the support in the z direction was perfectly fused to the object it self. I haven't tryed the touching build plate yet as my object needed more support but I'll give it a try.
