Cura supports not working since 4.1

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura supports not working since 4.1

Cura supports haven't worked for me since 4.1. With every new release, I hope that the bug I've experienced has been fixed, but it hasn't. Just tried 4.5, same problem. It's quite frustrating, because I'd like to take advantage of some of Cura's newer features, but I continually have to go back to 4.1 just to get reliable supports. Large areas of supports are just not being generated for the first several layers, so when Cura decides to finally generate them properly at a higher layer, they're not adhering to the bed. I've attached some screenshots below to clearly show this major problem which has persisted through multiple versions. I sure hope Ultimaker can finally fix this nasty bug soon.

Could you please provide the project file? Do File -> Save and attach the .3mf file to this thread. Thanks.

As a workaround, setting the support stair step height to 0 appeared to help...

Excellent! Thank you so much! I guess I should've posted this problem here a long time ago instead of suffering in silence!

Aha! But your solution had me check out other support settings that I had hidden. I set Support Stair Step Maximum Width to 0 which worked!

      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.
