Support Starting in Mid-Air

Recommended Posts

Posted · Support Starting in Mid-Air

Hi.
I am with Cura 4.4.0
Octoprint 1.3.12
Octpi 0.16.0
Chrome Browser
I am trying to print a Bust of an Easter Island Statue, and I generate support everywhere and Cura comes up with support that starts in mid-air.

 

I tried playing around with support xy and z distances to no avail.

Thanks for your comments and/or suggestions.

Hi Falsf Thanks for your answer. 

I am including the .stl file that I used. 

In the original file as you will see the statue is on it's side and it is only 1.215mm tall!.

So what I did is to move the statue so that it would be vertical with a lot less support than on it's side. And enlarged it so that it would be 50mm tall. (Z axis.).

 

And that's what you see in the picture.

 

Thanks again waiting for your answer.

I downloaded the .STL, opened it in Cure 4.4.1, scaled it up to 5000% (when I finally found the tiny dot on the bed 😉 ), and the supports seem fine.
