Urgent question to cura printing with support

Posted · Urgent question to cura printing with support

Hello everyone,

First, if the posting is double-posted, please delete one. I tried to post this, but then the connection crashes, if not, please post:

yesterday i tried Cura, because i can get my Ultimaker 2 tomorrow. After i gambling a little, i try to make gcode from my Model.

Because i have many overhangs on the model (Scans of self designed Boardgame-Miniatures) i use "Support type everywhere." After that, i take a look at the layer view.

And i am shocked. Even half of the required supports were shown. I try another Model --> the same. Almost all of my models haven't got the neccessary supports.

The Ultimaker 2 is my 2nd 3D-Printer. I have plenty excerience with a replicator2. Those supports are already there.

Now my question is:

Is the "Not showing" of the supports a bug in the view, or, an that'll be REALLY worse, is the view the actual support structure and all of my prints will be rubbish... .

In that case, i'll send back the printer, because it's useless for me (i don't want to set every support manually, these Miniatures are to complex for this).

Regards

Showing a picture of what's happening would be helpful in figuring out what's going on.

This picture for example, It's a thingiverse miniature. You can see the "problematic parts" in the red circles.

Is that a view problem, or are there really no supports.

Hello again,

first @Osgar: Thanks, that could solve the problem. Setting the angle back to 10 makes support on the parts.

But... right now i see this in the view:

It seems, that the last couple of layers are set out of the build room and misplaced from the other layers.

Whats this?

Regards

Yes, sure.

I take this one from thingiverse:

Then i repaired it via Netfabb (it has several holes an degenerated triangles) but now, it should be fine. I have those behaviour also at other models.

BTW: I'm using the 14.03 of Cura.

It's the basis to any bugreport; Ensure that you are using the latest version and (if there are any) you've tried the release candidates. If you are feeling especially helpfull & adventurous; also test it on nightly builds.

Well, first thanks for the lots of help.

I'll try the RCs now. Using the nightlies, I'm to excited for gettting and using the new ultimaker.

(I'm a software developer indeed on the java side of life, but running a nightly build is always a task of developing for me, so if i find something and have access to the code, i want to fix it) :D.

Perhaps later, when i'm getting more familiar with the printer, Phyton an C. ;)

But now: getting the printer and making first steps with the ultimaker 2.

Regards

Midgard

Python is pretty darn easy to get started with. The C side of things is a bit more tricky, but most of the really hard stuf is on the math, not so much in the actual implementation of things.

More developers for Cura is always good :)
