printing support

Posted (edited) · printing support

To print PLA support structure, I use settings as below  to achieve both easy removal and size precision:


                      Nozzle = 0.4mm

            Layer Height = 0.33mm (I print mostly big parts.)

Support Line Width = 0.3mm (thin, for easy removal)

Support Z Distance = 0 mm (for size precision)

     Support Density = 10%

             Print Speed = 50 mm/s


The real print is not too bad, with only small amount of thin support lines adhering to the supported model area.


Hope to have your comments for similar rough prints? Thank you!
