How to solve WOBBLY long thin supports?

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to solve WOBBLY long thin supports?



I have noticed that very long thin supports are ineffective as they get too wobbly the higher you go up (clearly proof of torque = force x distance). I am basically resorting to lowering my overhang angle in order to create a "bigger and wider" support which both greatly increases printing time and material usage. The only solution I can find on Cura is using Tree supports, but that always gives me "support z distance" errors where the supports are too far away from the actual model, causing failure (but that is for ANOTHER topic).


What can I do to eliminate or remedy these wobbly long thin supports?


(E.g, The support on the right which is long and thin)
