Cura support generated outside of model bounds with 5.3.1

Posted · Cura support generated outside of model bounds with 5.3.1


I'm seeing this weird behavior of support being generated where it doesn't need to be. In previous 5.0 version this worked without a problem.


I updated to 5.3.1 cause I had another problem with adaptive layers in 5.0.


As you can see in the images, 5.0 generates the support material like its supposed to, but in 5.3.1 the material sticks outside of the object bounds.
This is just a test object to showcase the error.


I hope someone can either point me to a setting that might fix this, or for a future version to fix this problem.


I've tried changing the following settings without any success:

- Enable Support Interface

- Support Z Distance

- Support X/Y Distance

- support Overhang Angle

- support Density

- Support Patterns (Zig Zack + Gyroid)

- Support Density

- Support Brim

- Support Wall Line Count

    Support Horizontal Expansion.  0.8 = 2 lines width it's too much in your case, try a value between 0 and 0.6
