Gap in wall around support


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Gap in wall around support

Hi all. I've designed a project box that has several cutouts in the faces which require supports as the box is printed. For some reason a gap is being left in the wall at the top of the support, but not at the bottom. I've attached some photos that show a partial of the box with the support in place and without. The wall of the box is 1.8mm at the top and bottom of the support. My line width is set to 0.9mm and the preview in Cura shows two full shell lines in both spots. Could this be a bug or is it possible that my support settings are to blame?
