Custom Supports not working in small area

Recommended Posts

Posted · Custom Supports not working in small area

Using Cura 4.4.1. Having trouble getting custom supports to work fully. As you can see in the picture I have 2 areas created for custom supports.

After slicing:

only supports are being generated in one area.

 

I am guess it has to do with the small area for the supports. Here is a picture of the gap:

I am pretty sure a setting under support is messing this up. The gap is about 3mm. Here are my support settings (Note: generate supports only click so you can see the settings, I sliced with this turned off):

Notice anything that would cause supports to not be generated in this small area?

 

Thanks!

After some more tinkering, I figured it out. In order to have custom supports to be placed on the model (as well as on the build plate) I had to have the support setting set to Everywhere. The missing supports showed up after this.

 

In the end, this didn't produce the desired result as I didn't want supports inside the model. So I ended up enabling supports "Everywhere" and then using the support blocker instead to prevent supports inside the model.

 

Hope this helps someone else.

      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.
