CURA calculates wrong overhang

Recommended Posts

The overhang viewer is separate from the actual overhang calculation.

The overhang viewer just makes faces red which have an angle over 60 degrees, while the internal overhang calculation works a bit different.

New overhang calculation mechanisms are in the process of development at this very moment. These mechanisms don't work on faces anymore and so there is no intuitive viewing method for showing EXACTLY what counts as overhang.

The best way to see what counts as overhang is to look at the support in the layer view and use GRID-support.
