Setting minimal size of suport


Recommended Posts

Posted · Setting minimal size of suport



How can I limit minimal size of support structure to avoid generatind supports in limited spaces? For example, can I limit size of support 3 mm width or length, if I need avoid priting support in narrow space of 2 mm? I need it to avoid printing narrow unstable support structure inside of my model.

I have found "Minimum support Area" in Support settings, but it is not exactly, what I need. 


Thank you for your support :)

    If you would post a 3mf project file (File | Save Project) of your model and Cura settings somebody could look at it.  Sometimes Support Blockers work and sometimes particular combinations of Settings work and sometimes it's a mixture of the settings and the support blockers.
