Supports are printing in mid air

Recommended Posts

Posted · Supports are printing in mid air

I'm trying to print a model using supports for overhangs greater than 45 degrees. There are supports placed on top of the model to support overhangs above, but the support isn't connected to the model at the bottom of the support. This seems to be the case where the the support is placed near vertical walls or when the support is placed on a radius? If I print, the support is printed in mid-air above the model and you know what happens from there. Is there a setting to make sure that the supports are connected to the model on the bottom of the support?1549162116_ScreenShot2020-06-23at8_30_56AM.thumb.png.70e3c48128ac21fc650ba29e8ee30e26.png723912616_ScreenShot2020-06-23at8_38_34AM.thumb.png.b9924f96bc98d193bec6ce039138ffc9.png2044634670_ScreenShot2020-06-23at8_36_01AM.thumb.png.42989d3f9979721c6f740a725407f1f0.png

Do you have z overrides x/y enabled ? I think you would need that.

 

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

Sorry, my mistake, the setting is called Support Distance Priority

 

Here's what I get when I set that to Z overrides X/Y.
