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 !

      • 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
