Support Bug in 15.02.1

Recommended Posts

In case it helps, I ran into a similar issue with Cura 15.02.1

Turns out that your Shell thickness (on the Basic tab) must be a multiple of your Nozzle size (on the Advanced tab).

If it's not, Cura will not generate support for horizontal surfaces.

For example, if your nozzle size is 0.44mm, your Shell thickness needs to be an even multiple of that, 0.44, 0.88, 1.32, 1.76] etc.

Don't know why, it took me a while to figure out, but it solved my support issue.

    • "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.
