Printing support for sharp edges

Posted · Printing support for sharp edges

Hello forum,

 

I have the following issue:

Cura does not print support for very small edges (edges without any chamfer). I know there is the option "print thin walls", which helped with this issue for small edges on the build plate, however, I did not find this option for support. Currently I have to work around it by designing all objects with chamfers, where support is needed. This is somewhat laborious.

 

Can anyone help?

 

Kind regards,

    Does anyone have a solution for this yet? I have the same trouble here with my propeller and foil edges. Random support creation, some patterns work better than others but it’s a hit and miss. Often thin edges are completely missed.   Thanks
