Cura 4.6 Support changes, can't find fix.


Recommended Posts

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So I finally updated Cura as I was at least 6 months out of date.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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
