Cura 4.5.0 Support Generation/Slicing Error

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 4.5.0 Support Generation/Slicing Error

Hello All:

I noticed that Cura (ver 4.5.0) is creating errors in generating dissolvable support (PVA).


The error, which has occurred on two different models, appears as partial support for circular features. Screenshots of Layers 1 , 29, and 30 (attached) in the first model show the error. Three of the four circular recesses have full support, but the fourth is only partially supported (see the arrow pointing to the area that is unsupported). The print is otherwise perfect except for the small area that did not have support. Also attached is the 3mf file for inspection.


Screenshots of layers 1, 11, and 12 of the  second model (labeled TL) show the same problem. Also attached is the 3mf of that model. 


I noticed that the support error is in proximity to other supported features but don't see how to fix the problem.

Thank you for your help.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
