Re: How toStrengthen Tall Thin Supports

Yes, this can help a bit but the down side is it expands all of the supports so it has an adverse effect on the other supports on the model.

Re: How toStrengthen Tall Thin Supports

Doesn't help. I use 45, -45. Support is too tall and thin.

Re: How toStrengthen Tall Thin Supports

That's an interesting idea but the STL is supplied to me.
I suppose I could modify it in Fusion or something else but either way it is an interesting idea to remember.

Re: How toStrengthen Tall Thin Supports

I am and the base is fine it is not coming loose. The problem is the support is simply thin and by the time you get to the top at 70mm it has no rigidity. The nozzle moves it around with each layer. I tried a nearly solid support column and it still flexes easily at the top. I guess it is just one o...

Re: How toStrengthen Tall Thin Supports

That is part of the problem, you can not add anymore around what is there. I added all that it would let me do. As you can see the start of the part being supported is pretty small and by the time it is printing the support is pretty flimsy and moving around. I am trying some different things but so...

How toStrengthen Tall Thin Supports

Probably a common situation. I have a model in the picture that has these thin and tall supports. By the time this part joins to the body it will be 100mm tall and extremely wobbly. How can we strengthen supports like this so they don't woggle as they get taller? I am using a support base layer and ...

External Perimeter Start/Stop Point Seam Issue

I know this is a pretty common issue but I don't use a Bowden style machine that much so looking for some advice. I think the issue in the picture is mainly the start point. I have been adjusting settings a little but have not made any real headway. The machine is a Fusion3 F410. PLA @ 210 Speed 50m...

Re: Remove multiple supports at once?

It is pretty simple in another program. You hold the shift key down and as the mouse pointer goes over a support it is removed. No need to actually hold or click the mouse button.
So you kind of remove supports with a "painting" type motion. it is functional for bulk removal.

Re: Steps per mm

Essentially if you are on a Marlin based firmware you can probably set the steps, unlike a Sailfish firmware that doesn't use "steps" and therefor wouldn't understand the command to set them. On a printer that is "commercially" produced and the robo seems to maybe fit this category then I would say ...
