Version 5.1.1 & 5.2.0 Support Structures

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Version 5.1.1 & 5.2.0 Support Structures

I'm working on a Windows 64 i7 Desktop computer. The last two versions of Cura have a problem with generating support structures. I had the problem in Version 5.1.1 and thought that I'll wait for the next upgrade, hopefully it would have been fixed. I downloaded Version 5.2.0 and the problem remains, although different to Version 5.1.1. In the previous version the structures seemed well formed, but it was only created halfway up to where the support was needed. This time round the support goes to the required height, but builds it where the support is not needed. I have attached photos to illustrate. It makes no difference which settings I choose. Please help.
