Netfabb Support Options

Recommended Posts

In NetFabb I believe the best (and really the only reliable option) is weak fluff support. This builds a bunch of branching towers from the bed up towards the overhands and then at the top few layers before the overhang it deliberately under-extrudes so that the actual support is 'fluffy' and easy to remove...

I rarely ever use support though... Best by far to avoid support as much as you can by careful placement / orientation of the model or splitting it up and gluing together.

Cheers,

Troy.

I found the standard support to work with PLA and I mostly used weak fluff and fluff back when I printed PLA.

I had to customize the settings for ABS. Here's an example, if you can copy and paste the following into a .reprapstyle file, you should be able to try it (for ABS). I wish I could figure out a way to simply attach the file here. :(

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
