s3d not generating support

Tue Jun 07, 2016 11:42 am

I'm not sure why this feature isn't working. I've been able to generate supports on other files before. Suddenly it's not working on any model I try. The Factory File is attached. Am I overlooking something?

Your support pillar resolution is far too large for your model. Those beams are only a few millimeters thick, so you need to lower your pillar resolution to 1-2mm

Also, you might want to save some of those processes as actual filament or machine profiles. That makes things much easier to work with ;)

That was it. Thanks!

And yes, I need to work on my workflow. I haven't done enough reading on what the different file/profiles save.
