Cannot get support to print in my Base


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cannot get support to print in my Base

Hi, I am trying to print a small statue which is placed atop a base. I have set infill to various different settings but for some reason the infill will not print in the base, and therefore the statue has no base to stand on. Why can I not get the infill to print in the base??  I have attached the 3mf file and one can see that the pedestal has no top and is printed hollow despite the infill setting. Have I a setting wrong somewhere . I use a creality ender3 pro. Thanks in advance, Al

    In the Special Modes turn off "Spiralize Outer Contour".  When it's on it only prints the wall.  If you can't see it then next to the settings search box is a drop down for setting visibility.  Select "All".

    Or you can use the search tool at the top of the settings panel.

     

    Personally, I am all for the show all settings. It is a lot, but, can open a lot of tweaks as you learn.

    The first thing I do is turn on "All".  I only have a single profile and if settings are hidden I'd forget them and they might be needed for the current model.
