TPU Supports

Mon Mar 13, 2017 1:11 am

I have found references on other sites that supports should not be used with TPU.
I am having issues with the supports not coming off neatly.
I have searched but cannot find any alternative for supporting overhangs than to use supports.
It is my understanding that HIPS would not be a viable option for TPU.

Can anyone steer me in the right direction?

well, I printed my iphone case with supports and they came off pretty well. But again, the surface above supports may not look as neat as PLA or ABS.. But support removal was not an issue for me

Do you have any pictures ?
