Is it normal that my support doesn't extend more (curvy shape)?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Is it normal that my support doesn't extend more (curvy shape)?



I have set Cura 4.6.1 to create a support for angles below 45°.


However this is what I get whereas I was expecting supports for both the places below the end as well below the beginning of the s-curve (circled in red in the picture).


Is it a bug or is it me?

    If you could post your settings for the supports that would be helpful in seeing if any the settings are wrong or not first.


    Also it's always good to upload the .3mf file from Cura, you can make this file via ( File - Save ) after you have added your .stl into Cura, this will let people see your settings and .stl and cross check settings.
