Supports not showing in preview nor printing

I have added automatic supports in various size and non of them showing.
For example I have added 1.4mm automatic supports, they all show before slicing in the form of those red cubes, then when sliced they don't show in the preview.

Re: Supports not showing in preview nor printing

You really need to provide some more information....

Set up S3D so as to give a result that fails....and then export a Factory file...File dropdown==>Save Factory file.

This file will include the model AND your settings.....which will probably what needs adjusting! Not knowing your settings, its impossible to suggest what to change!

Looking at the stl file in a viewer, I can't see where you would wany any supports. The outside wall is angled well inside the range where support is not required...at least with it standing on one of the faces

Re: Supports not showing in preview nor printing

....which shouldn't need supports.

But if you insist, set the Support pillat resolution to 1.0mm.

And if that doesn't work....do what I suggested in the first place.......HELP OTHERS HELP YOU!
