I´m starting to do some test prints with extreme overhang.
The problem is that the generated support material (using slic3r) simply doesn´t connect to the main body, so it´s useless. As a result, the edges bend up which ruins the print.
Are there any settings to fix that? I tried already different settings, always with a similar result. The support connects almost correctly at spots with a small angle, but at more extreme angles, the support pattern changes and it doesn´t connect anymore.
I know it´s possible to generate the support before slicing it with a CAD-program, but that can´t be the only way. I can´t do it like that if i want to print stl´s from someone else.
How do you manage this?
