support material is difficult to remove

Recommended Posts

I have been having issues with removing the support material. I am printing a hollow cylinder type product, but the support material attaches to the piece inside and it becomes very difficult to remove. I have also printed this piece on the side but the support material on the outside also gets stuck...

I am printing in PLA using the high quality print button with support material.

Thank you for reading!

What material is this? Looks like XT. I had a huge problem removing supports for XT as they seems to fuse with the print and break like plexiglass.

I would recommend not using raft.

Play with the infill of the supports. There seems to be so many and consider making your own using MeshMixer or other software.

      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
