Tree support supports only part


Recommended Posts

Posted · Tree support supports only part

Hi, when I have tree supports and only on buildplate, Cura generates support like this:



When I activate supports everywhere, it grows one more from the model and supports everything:



If I set "tree support branch angle" from 40 to 45, it also fixes it, but it's again only one tree:



Why doesn't Cura generate one more tree on the right side which would connect with the left tree? Any tips for this?

Thank you!

    I have been having this exact issue this past week.  I wish they would simply add the PAINT support option that is so nice in SuperSlicer.  While that doesn't fix this issue, it would make it much easier to put supports exactly where you want/need them.  I love the TREE supports but having this issue or where it prints one HUGE foot (I have changed the settings every which way to no avail) then going to several branches farther up.  What a waste of material, time, and can damage so much of the model.
