Tree Support Starting Branches in Mid Air


Recommended Posts

Posted · Tree Support Starting Branches in Mid Air

Running 4.8.0 and have noticed this happen several times in different models. Enabled Tree supports with defaults except changed Branch Angle from 30 to 25, and Support Overhang Angle to 70 deg. Midway up the model, it will try to start printing a branch on nothing. Of course this fails and anything that was supposed to be supported by that branch also fails. Only workaround I found was to using regular supports which took much longer to print and more cleanup. Is this a confirmed issue? Is there a settings combination that's causing this? Any help much appreciated. Thanks!
