SUPPORTS

Postby expressprototype » Thu Nov 02, 2017 9:29 pm

Im trying to find how to add a layer of support at a different angle say every 10 or 20 layers just to give the support extra strength

is this possible?

when making a large part and the support gets tall it starts to fall or bend and dont want to use grid supports as its harder to remove from inside models.

Thanks in advance

Under Support tab, there is a section called Interlaced Support Infill Angle, you can set different Infill Angle of support structure. Then the support structure's infill angle will follow the sequence you set.

For example, if you Add 0, 45, 90.
1st layer: 0
2nd layer: 45
3rd layer: 90
4th layer: 0
5th layer: 45
6th layer: 90
7th layer: 0
