Support structures supported

Recommended Posts

Hi. I have been using cura, then slicer and now cura again after I learned how wonderfull cure is.

My problems is that I need support structure for my object, but during printing support structure randomly breaks off from glass. Brim and raft solves this problem but I would like to have my main object without brim and raft because when I take it off it leaves sharp edges.

So question is how to print to keep support structure on plate without coming off during printing? Easy solution would be a pluggin that generates brim and raft only for support structure.

I use PLA on heated normal window glass. Temp for first layers 210 and 80, later 180 and 60.

    • "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.
