Support structure only appearing on one side

Posted · Support structure only appearing on one side

Hi,

I'm trying to print a very small figure, I'm not sure whether it is printable on the U2 but thought I'd give it a go.

However, when I selected support structure within Cura it only prints the supports on one side. Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

Heres a screenshot link: http://www.dream3d.co.uk/uploads/support-structure-cura-error.png

Thanks,

James

    Since this is a small figurine you might just fall into the case where the support as not enough space to be created. Try playing with the support settings in the Expert -> Open expert settings.

    Or use Autodesk Meshmixer (free) to create your supports. In this case it will give a better result and reduce the used material.
