Cura 4.12.1 Internal custom support is not printed

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura 4.12.1 Internal custom support is not printed

Those are so tiny that they fall below your settings and are ignored.  (That is doubly true for the ones supporting the clip overhangs.)

If you just adjust the Y widths on the tall ones, and make the little ones bigger in both the X and Y, and make an adjustment to the "Per Model" settings (see below) they will slice.


And now (since I've put some time into this) I will critique the design.

Those lock tabs ARE going to break off.  The reason is that the layer adhesion won't be strong enough to resist the forces they will see.  Removing the support will also be problematic.  I would suggest you go with #2 sheet metal screws instead.  I know, you have to get a tool to assemble or dis-assemble, but it will work repeatedly whereas the tabs may not work even one time.

The back sides of the tabs have a square bottom and would require support.  If they had a 45° chamfer they would not require support.




With some adjustments to the support settings - this is the support that Cura provides with no "Custom" support structures.  That would be my preference on this model.  There is the tall skinny support being generated for the backside bottoms of the tab structure.  I think I would use support blockers there as tall skinny support structures often fail.

      • 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
