Hi, i am new on 3D printing, but I cannot understand how suport structures can stand if they do not lay on anything, but air. Throwing everything away after 9 hours of printing is not a good experience, did I wrong anything? aany help will be appreciated and hope this post can be useful for other. In the attached file some screenshots of the sliced model and cura settings for support structures.

    I'm having this issue also. I've been printing for years using Cura and this is the first time I've encountered this problem. I just recently updated to 4.4.0 last week and loaded in a large file that would take 5+ days to print when I noticed going into day 2 that it was printing stuff OVER AIR. The oozed out filament had nowhere to adhere to so when it moved to the next point in the print it started to build up spaghetti.  I went back to the slicer to see if I was imagining things and there it was.. hanging in mid-air to start printing was a tiny island.. two days into the print. Wth? Any idea why this is happening? I've attached a screen shot of the sliced model and my settings. Hopefully there's a fix for this that I've missed.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
