S3D not generating supports correctly.

Tue Oct 25, 2016 7:09 pm

So I have this part I need printing with two screw holes and a rectangular hole and I add support that fills the holes, but when I go to prepare in gcode it just has a small part of the support on one side or the other and my prints end up collapsing because no support really exists.

I will provide photos when I'm able to install software to do so, under a new openbox install (linux).

Managed to partially fix this by reducing the support angle allot. Seems rather flawed that it can't replicate the supports shown in preview mode.

Ok managed to resolve it setting 30degree support angle and changing support infil from 15% to %25 and adding in some angles (got 0 and 45 degrees atm which seem like it will be easy to remove). Time to test.

Does this help answer your question re manually placed supports??
