Issue with generating tree supports (4.7.1)


Recommended Posts

Posted · Issue with generating tree supports (4.7.1)

Hello everyone!


I'm working on a tip jar that has a NeoPixel ring in the middle of it.  I'll eventually print it in transparent PETG but I'm just doing test prints in regular opaque PLA for now.  In the first pic you see a section of the underside of the jar with the squares in the circle touching each LED in the ring.  From the perspective of the pic the area in the center of the model was a little more deep than the area outside the ring.  I fixed this in the model so the heights match and now the tree supports look like the second pic, with no support in the middle of the ring.  When the two areas were different heights I was able to get tree support in the middle.  I can go back and reedit the model so both heights are slightly different (this area won't be seen anyway) but I'd prefer to have them at the same level.


Any suggestions?

        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.
