Dual extrusion supports for overlapping area

Posted · Dual extrusion supports for overlapping area

I am having an issue getting supports for a part that has areas that overlap.  If I just do supports with my main extruder it works but if I try to use my second extruder for dense interfaces I get a zebra strip part.  Any ideas for settings or will Cura not do this with supports.  On a more simple part it works fine but it sees to have issue with the curved bottom.

    I can't duplicate this but I'm guessing at how you have it set up.

    With the model loaded and ready to slice use the "File | Save Project" command and then post the 3mf file here.  Maybe something will stick out.

    Some folks post things and never come back.  We never know if the problem was fixed or they got mad at a reply, or maybe they threw the printer out a window (Xvico holds the record with an Ultimaker in 2nd place).  So thanks for getting back.

      • 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...

        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.
