Hello dear Moai users.
I come with a bit of a problem regarding Asura’s supports. Not about its placement (or lack thereof) in auto-generation, but about how they are exported in gcode.
here is the situation:
I am using Asura 2.2.3
I want to print this:
So, I put it on the sd, start the moai, come some time later, and… I get this:
As you can see, the supports that were supposed to be a lot of small struts under the head/shoulders are a big single block. This is nice in terms of sturdyness, sure, but… I can’t remove it.
Curious about what/how/why, I loaded the gcode in a viewer (ideamaker), and saw this:
As you can see, it reproduce quite well what I got printed: a big chunk instead of small supports.
To check, I took again the original stl, added a few supports in asura, sliced it, and opened the gcode, here it is:
In contrast, if I make supports in another soft (chitubox here), import it and slice with the same parameters, I get a nice and correct gcode:
Has anyone experienced something similar? Am I doing something wrong?
