Custom Supports not created as expected


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Custom Supports not created as expected

I'm trying to get a support structure for a small overhang, the area circled in blue:








So, I added a custom support:




But, when I  look at the preview the support structure is not there.




When I enable creation of supports in print settings (with or without the custom support structure added), I see this in the preview"

Note the support stops about 1 mm below the overhang it needs to support, maybe because of the nearby overhang and associated geometry?


Is that 1 mm gap ok?  If not, how do I create  a support struct for these overhangs?
