Types of support

Postby Bikeracer » Mon Jul 27, 2020 5:43 pm

Is there anywhere that describes the different types of support and best use for each type ?

Pillar Type is same as the support generated by Manual Support that each pillar can be added or removed.
Normal Type can't be edited by each individual piece.

Thanks.
It was more the different types of support infil that I needed information for, as in....grid, lines, concentric, rectilinear, triangles and gyroid.
I see the same types in the normal infill tab but have no idea which to choose for a print.

Depends on model structure and how you want to improved based on printing result.
Normally we use Rectilinear for Normal support.
Dense Support is normally used those hollow structures, especially model with tiny, thin structure.
Curvel surfaces can try Concetric.
Gyroid can provide stronger support with low density to support large surfaces.

Thanks, that helps me to understand a bit more.
