Problem with support generation

Recommended Posts

Posted · Problem with support generation

I have the following problem with Cura 14.09.1_RC2:

I want to print an object, splitting it into two halves and glueing them together.

To do this, I rotate the object and sink it into the bottom half way (cut off object bottom):

cura support with Cut Off object bottom 1

Now, I need support on the left side of the part, but because there is some material underneath, it won't generate any (support setting: touching build plate only).

So, the structures that are not printed because they are sunk into the build plate still count as "in the way" for Cura to generate support.

Would be nice to have this corrected.

There is a workaround here: just use the "everywhere" support, which works for this part.

But generating support everywhere can be an issue on complex parts where you wouldn't want internal supports, but just the ones touching the build plate.
