Change "Support Z Distance" setting


Recommended Posts

Posted · Change "Support Z Distance" setting

In Cura 4.7, the "Support Z Distance" setting gets rounded to a multiple of the layer height. A better alternative would be to make it similar to "Raft Air Gap" which is free and not linked to a preset value. As 1x layer height produces support that is very firmly stuck onto the model, and 2x layer height produces a saggy loose initial layer on the model with a very easy to remove support.

If this value could be set to .25 or .5 increments that would improve usage and results, but entirely customisable would be better.
