Filament strands on the edge of vertical holes above bed height


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Filament strands on the edge of vertical holes above bed height

I am looking for a way to prevent strands of filament being formed by the initial pass on a vertical hole that has a support structure under it.  I use the default roof support interface and invariably get strands of filament on the edge of holes as shown in the attached image. 


I would also appreciate any suggestions to get a cleaner "roof" in parts like this.  The spacing of the filament on that first supported layer is so bad that it looks like some of the support is still attached to the part even though it seemed to separate easily.
