Feature Request to Ultimaker Cura Developers

Posted · Feature Request to Ultimaker Cura Developers

I love Cura. It has a lot of amazing features and has served me very well. I do have one request though... please fix the supports!


I request that the default for supports be at an angle greater than 45 degrees. It is pretty annoying that when supports are enabled that EVERYTHING is supported. 


I even get supports on a wall that is straight vertical with support angle set at 89 degrees. Then I put support blocker on ever single piece of the wall, and I still get supports on that vertical wall. Why do I have supports on a wall that is perpendicular to the bed, straight UP? With support blockers? 


it's just annoying. It won't keep me from using the slicer. 


Thank you for everything you've done! I love all of your work

    Hey @DWILLEMS26,


    Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉


    The support angle is different per printer and all printer definitions are contributed by the community.  Since Cura is open source, you or anyone else is more than welcome create a pull request to change the default value. 


    It's hard to imagine that everything is supported because of this setting, it might also be affected by the Minimum Support Area and Enable Support Towers. 

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

      • 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.
