Supports Generating Zits on Prints


Recommended Posts

Posted · Supports Generating Zits on Prints

I've recently taken to trying to print miniatures on my Ender 3 Pro (with direct drive) and I'm seeing Cura 4.6.2 generate supports that are

  • Not attached to anything on the bottom (or extending out into midair)
  • Not attached to anything on the top

I don't want to set my supports to "From Buildplate" because I'm printing the minis on a base, so "From Buildplate" would cause the print to not be properly supported. I've messed with the X/Y/Z distance for supports, which causes the existing unsupported supports to look better but then adds more of the same issue in other places.


I am printing this model at 110% scale, attached are photos of the issue as well as my support settings
