Adjust tree support trunk size


Recommended Posts

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.
