No Support printed on CURA 14-11-RC8

Recommended Posts

i cannot download the model, tryed several times..

well, i tought the base would probably be thicker, as this is the usual way to make support stable but not of to much material

Maybe Kisslicer thickening the part instead of ignoring when to small..?

@ Ultimaker - Wouldn't that be a good new button in cura to make too small stuff just the smallest amount possible instead of ignoring it?

I was able to download the stl no problem.

It's a pretty small overhang so I guess cura gets confused? In cura 14.09 it supports 1/3 of the overhang but not the rest. I played around with the support settings and couldn't get it to support the overhang all the way around.

I would build my own support in cad - a cylinder supporting that brim on the inner edge. With gaps to make it easier to snap off. 0.9mm thick. Or if you don't have the cad model use meshmixer to generate support.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
