Support not working?!

Recommended Posts

I don´t find anything about this, but is the Support option working? I´m using latest OS X Version and turn on the Support, but Cura doesn´t show me any support material. However "Touching buildplate" or "Everywhere".

Anybody a hint for me?

The support doesn't show up in the 3D view of the part - you need to change to the layers view to see it. But then you should see it (it shows up as blue lines, iirc). The positioning of the support will depend on the overhang angle of the print, so there might be less than you expect.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
