Gradual Support Infill steps with Conical Support

Recommended Posts

Posted · Gradual Support Infill steps with Conical Support

Gradual Support Infill steps with Conical Support, its looking great fast print with less material solution in the view of support structure. 


But need two following updates/improvements in Gradual Support Infill steps to use properly.


   1)  I test done with my printer and finds need slow speed when gradual starts, At those points print getting disturbed due to bridge and for that bridge need slow speed, So Need slow speed at initial transection layer . Slow speed - 20-30% as compare to normal speed of support. See attached images.


  2) For Zig Zag pattern, Need 90 degree Direction change when gradual starts, so print will not in air. In this way we can use Zig Zag pattern properly. This problem may solve by using Triangles or grid pattern but its increase time and material. So need Zig Zag pattern. See attached images.


Kindly share those suggestion to proper person , Please  . . . . Thanks,  Happy Prints !
