Different support type on the same part, possible ?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Different support type on the same part, possible ?

I would like to change the orientation of the supports at two differents place of the same part.
For example I'm printing a custom fan carriage, I would like the left place of the part to be print with the value 45 for the parameter "support infill line directions", and the right place of the same part with the value "135" for this same parameter.

I hope there is a way to do that on the same part, with some plugin maybe ? There is, isn't it ?

I put some screenshots :

good supports orientation for left place : (value 45°)

good supports orientation for right place (value 135°)

what I can only obtain : (with value 135°)

    Hello, 

     

    I think you can do this by adding a block (either a STL or a Support blocker) and then using Per Model Settings to edit the type and orientation of the infill. If you llok on youtube you will probablt find some nice tutorials on the topic.

     

    Happy 3D printing!

    Hi, unfortunately the parameter "support infill line directions" is not available in "per model settings", only the "line infill direction" is. That's why I'm kinda stuck.

    Then, the other solution is to design the support into the cad file.
