Cura 4.6 Support changes, can't find fix.

Posted · Cura 4.6 Support changes, can't find fix.

So I finally updated Cura as I was at least 6 months out of date. I love the new updates but can't work out supports anymore. I never used to get a full wall around each support, and I can't seem to turn off the options giving supports a roof and floor. My latest prints have had supports stronger than the model itself, so I have been damaging long prints just removing supports.

I used to have a brilliant corrugated sort of pattern that popped off easily, saved material, and made prints faster. But I cannot for the life of me work out how to get back to those old settings.

I attached pictures showing the issue a bit, I'm stuck with the current floored and walled red support, but want to go back to the simpler blue one. And the other image shows that enabling or disabling Support Interface roof and floor doesn't seem to actually do anything for my prints.

Thanks in advance for any help.

    I think your sketches are meant to be top views? In that case, the lines you don't want are not roofs and floors. Try setting the Support Wall Count to 0.

    My absolute hero! That did it 🙂

    And now I now I can find additional settings that don't typically appear in the options list, so thanks for that.

    And thanks for replying to both my posts asking the same thing!

    I'll be back to printing properly soon. 🙂

    Glad I could help. If next time you could please not cross-post asking the same thing, that would be great. Had I not taken the time to answer both your posts, someone else would have ended up also putting time towards helping you, wasting time.
