Suggestion to save a support?

Post by jd_aus »

Could a sacrificial bridge layer be added below this hole on the motor bracket body? PETG is a nightmare when it comes to supports and I partiularly seem to have issues with PrusaSlicer. It would be great to simply not need them. I'm grumpy because my supports failed and killed my print at 33% :roll:

Oh well, back to the drawing board. I'll try closer support line spacing.

You should activate support interfaces in your slicer. This has done wonder for my PETG supports. Here are My PETG support settings:

Thanks for that info. I will give Cura a shot, I just really like the simplicity of Prusa Slicer so rarely step away from it.

Man having no end of issues with support and PETG I may have to ditch PETG and try ASA as the support always screws up and ruins the main print, a particular part I'm having issues with is the Pulley Mount Front Left/Right - wants to support the lettering etc. be sweet if we adjusted these designs to have less support requirements i.e. angles below the lettering to self support them. I know it's probably just me and it's hard to complain when you're doing this project out of good will.

UPDATE: Cura configured and running off a print, looking positive. I think the difference is that support layer height is in-sync with layer height. Prusaslicer seems to be every second layer which inhibits support layers from successfully laying down... further research to come.
