So I am trying to print a helmet on my E5+ and I cannot get cura to adequately support these horns. Prusa has paint on supports which is awesome, but I don't like the program. I have tried printing this with custom supports 6 times, all fail. What setting am I missing?


These pictures show just basic supports, I have not added custom ones in there. When I do add custom supports, there is 2 layers of air inbetween the support and the tip and thats where it fails when I add them.

    Set Cura up with the model and your settings and then use "File | Save Project" and post the 3mf file here.

    Off the top of my head (and from far away) that looks like a candidate for Tree Support.  I'd want to play with the settings though.  Sometimes it's the XY distance or you need to enable Z overrides XY.  Those tall skinny supports won't complete and whatever they are suppose to support will fail.

    Actually, I could do it remotely, let me know if this works. See the horns have no support?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
