Support issues

Recommended Posts

Posted · Support issues

I've got a part with two counter-bores in the bottom surface. I have enabled support at 45 degrees and 20% in order to get a flat surface.

The first couple of layers, it's fine but in the remaining layers, I only get half of the support (when looking down on the part).

Anyone know what's happening?

Picture please. From Cura maybe. Click "Gallery" in top left corner of this page, then "upload" button. Then make a new post and click "my media" next to smile icon.

gr5,

I don't have a pic of the counterbore feature I mentioned above but I do have a pic of what I think is the same issue on a different part. See attached... I can' not get any support material to fill under the overhang on this part. I've got the "Everywhere" option selected. Overhang Angle is zero.

Please note, I'm using Cura thru the Repitier Host software.

Is there any way I can upload the STL file in question to see if any of you can create the support material I need?

Thanks

Robert

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
