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)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
