Posted · PVA Support section

Hi !

 

I use an Ultimaker S5 and I have recently started having problems with preparing a part that requires PVA support. As you can see in the picture below, the support structure isn't convering the entire section of the part, it leaves a gap between the structure.

I have been browsing around for other options in cura's support configuration but I can't seem to find anything that will fix this. I generally use Cura's default profiles for materials. Currently using Ultimaker CPE+ and Ultimaker PVA. 

 

- I am using Cura 4.4.0 BETA at the moment and I have a feeling this only started happening since. 

 

- So far, changing support placement from Everywhere to Touching build plate doesn't change anything.

 

- I tried changing from PVA to Breakaway and the support covers the entire section, so this only happens with PVA.

 

- Also tried with a diferente part and the same problem happens.
