Supports are not touching 3d model

Posted · Supports are not touching 3d model

I'm a bit new to 3D printing and have printed a few things but I'm having an issue where when generating supports, the support itself is not touching the model i'm trying to print. I've tried settings like 'Z overrides X/Y' and changing Support Z Distance, but nothing seems to work. I'm using Cura 5.2.2 Plz help

 

the model I'm trying to print:

FilamentGuide_v2.5.stl

    Based on the screenshot of your gcode preview.. the support is working as intended..
    It should honestly never be directly printed on unless your using PVA material as support.

    What is the issue with the print its generating? do you have pictures of the print?

    I'm a bit confused as well. I used Support Interface and when switching layers between the layer the support is printed and the one before, there was a one layer gap between the print and the support.

    Hello printers, i had the same issue so i found this page. At first , i didnt found the answer but later after some tooling at Cura i found that theres this SUPPORT BOTTOM DISTANCE, that you should keep in 0 when no touchin or maybe go 0.1mm so that the support doesnt stick.

      • 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.
