Breakaway Support Structures

Thu Jan 07, 2021 3:56 pm

Hi All,

If any of you have used MakerBot Replicator 2s, You know that the supports are fairly easy to remove as they are much thinner and more spindly than regular shell sections. Do any of you have settings for S3D that achieve similar results? Your help is very appreciated.

Given that every printer is different, I would recommend using our supports article to learn more about Simplify3D supports and how to tune them for easier removal: https://www.simplify3d.com/support/arti ... tructures/
