Support material is too sticking on object printed

Mon May 16, 2016 8:01 pm

I'm now encountering some problem with an object with curves and require support, but the support material is hard to be removed and sticking too much to the object. Any idea how to set the support setting to make it easy to remove ?

Have you tried adjusting separation parameters listed at the bottom of the "Supports" tab? A setting of .3mm seems to work well for me... I normally print using a layer height of .3 so that means a upper and lower separation of 1 layer. For curved surfaces, the horizontal separation is key.
