Support Material isn't generated under part of my model

Posted · Support Material isn't generated under part of my model

Hi all, I've got a little oboe key that I'm printing for a friend. As you can see from the image, I can't get any support material under the hollow oval area to the left and it's giving me printing problems.

Any recommendations? Should I try a different slicer?

Not an answer why there's no support showing there, but as the top surface looks flat, could you not just flip your object over to print it?

You could try adjusting the XY support distance parameter. This effects the support material in quite a few ways.

Note that Cura currently has trouble with supporting thin area's like that.

@ChrisR: it's actually not flat. The disk is tilted at an angle upwards leaving no totally horizontal plane with which to lay on the print bed.

@Daid: I'll give that a try. Interestingly using the CuraEngine slicer in Repetier-Host yields proper support structure...it just won't start a print for some reason!
