Cura 13.10 support difficult to remove

Recommended Posts

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)

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
