Adjust tree support trunk size

Posted (edited) · Adjust tree support trunk size

I'd like to request a new feature to allow you to set the minimum tree trunk diameter / size.

If the trunk width is small there may be problems with bed plate adhesion.

To get around this you can use a brim, but the "Support Brim Width" option doesn't seem to do anything. You can enable brim for the whole part, which uses excess material, and it still might be better to have a larger trunk for stability reasons.

Cura does a great job of combining trunks when they're close together. But often there will be a tree by itself that is at risk of coming off the print bed.

Would be useful to set the minimum trunk X/Y width.

Thanks

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
