Support inside holes - how to get out?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Support inside holes - how to get out?

Maybe there's a setting for it, or maybe it's been discussed before, but I didn't find it 😞


Situation: I have a model that has a horizontal hole. Support is set to "everywhere", so Cura adds some nice supports that make sure the ceiling is as good-looking as the floor.

However, the hole is so small that I can't get the support OUT without damaging the print.


On bigger prints, I can use some pliers to tease it out. But in this case, the pliers are too big.

Is there a way to have the support go beyond the model? Like a handle so you can pull it out.


(Not using support would probably work, but the ceiling wouldn't be as nice, and it's part of a connector so it should be smooth.)

    You can use a support blocker just for this hole, or if you need support for this hole, drill out the support by hand in post processing.
