Supports melted into the model

Hello there,

 

I wanted to change from Simplify3D to Cura and got this as evidence that Cura seems not so fat as I thought and so many say.

Why cant Cura do proper auto-supports which go of easy?

This is a wasted 9 hours print ... thanks!

 

Regards

    Hey @LeSeule,

     

    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉
    Sorry to hear that your supports are failing. 😕

    Would you like us to help with troubleshooting? 


    I believe it might just be a case of finding the correct settings for your pinter. 

    Do you have a project file for us? It contains the printer and settings we need for troubleshooting. 
    To save a project file go to File -> Save project.

    I got this same issue until I read a post that said to change the interface support density from 75 to 35. I am using a setting of 30. It seems to work better. I am using CURA 5.2

    Hi Mari,

     

    happy new year and thanks for reply.

     

    Yes indeed very sad, as I saw so many videos about "how cool Cura is".
    Also the issue how to manage the "part after part" printing is way to complex compared to Simplify3D.
    That it depends on the order how the parts are loaded into the slicer is non-logical.

    I will check back later if I can find the data. But I guess I killed Cura and all files of it as reaction on this "mega" result.

     

    But I am sure that everything was default, as I dont play around where I am not safe with.
    So my real-life test was a good example how "beginner-friendly" Cura is in fact.

     

    Regards,

    Philippe

      • 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...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
