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.
