Supports impossible to generate?


#1

For this piece,

The Cura software places the supports perfectly, as I wish !

With Z-Suite 2,6,2, it is impossible : the supports are visible on the face which must not receive it ! It’s a visible side.

I do not want to print in another direction because this face is hyperbolic and must be perfect. (this face can not be printed horizontally because the layers are too visible: staircase)

 

I tried with the "automatic" supports and also by creating myself the supports (support surface, point or edge): the result is always the same

 

Is there a solution ?


#2

Two instant solutions comes to mind:

1) Use Cura to slice and convert to ZCode

2) remove the support in the ZCode created by Z-Suite

Both possible with that free 3rd party tool that ends with tool and starts with Z.

thank you for the idea ! :ph34r:

But I would prefer that zortrax improve Z-Suite for this point :rolleyes:

It works correctly when choosing the Legacy Support.

Try it out.
