Printing support material inside model


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing support material inside model



S5 Pro Bundle, 

UM Tough PLA - black

UM PVA - Natural


When printing with support, the print head crosses the model, at times leaving strings or small blobs of material on and in the actual model. This results in some bad looking prints. 


I have not changed anything on the standard print settings yet, but it have been a problem on all the models there have been with support. 


Is there a setting that makes the support avoid moving over the model, or do I need to have a closer look at the retraction settings for the PVA?

    This is from the release notes for 5.0.0 that was released today.

    "Fixed a bug where travels would go through the model with printing PVA".

    Okay, I will have to update and try again then 🙂

        This update is for...

        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.
