Bug: Useless little dots on first layer when using Gradual Support Infill Steps

Posted · Bug: Useless little dots on first layer when using Gradual Support Infill Steps

When using normal supports and the zig-zag pattern and increasing the support density with height via Gradual Support Infill Steps, little dots are placed on the first layer like this:



The dots correlate to where the ends of the lines would be when the density is increased via the gradual step:



If I use more than 1 step, then there are more stupid little dots.


This only happens with Gradual Support Infill Steps set to non-zero.  The only way I've found to get rid of them is to set Support Wall Line Count to greater than zero, which, unfortunately in my case increases the print time by 2 hours...  (It's a large model.)




...Or add a support brim (which is the workaround I'm using) that only adds a couple minutes since it's only on the first layer:
