Posted · How to attach support to model?

Hi guys,


I use Cura 5.3.0, Printer: Ender 3 max, and have this model (bottom view):


Which contain two domes (actually a flat surface on top of holes) that need support, when using "Support touching buildplate", as soon the first layer of the support is printed it's pill off from the build plate.

Normally I print with all default settings for PLA and never had issue. I tested to increase temperature from 200 to 205 degree, it's worse.




I tried Build plat adhesion > Raft: it's print incredibly well but I end up to throw the part away because no way to remove the raft.

Now I'm just looking a way attach the base support to the model like illustrated on the left hole in the picture, but look like support do not want to touch the model even if I add more support around.

I do not want to do more experimentation and wast more plastic I already did.


Any Ideas?

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
