I have been having problems with my Ender 3’s and support material getting stuck to the print. Almost to the point of being part of the print. I have been able to remove the support material by picking at it with dental picks, awls and various other cutting devices.
I usually end up digging them out but it is a pain and slows me down.
I wrestled with this for weeks before deciding it was time to solve the problem.
After several weeks of tweaking I have my Cura settings locked in and I thought I would share.
In most cases, if your support is part of the part.. the X/Y settings is too close. 0.12 Support Z Distance and 0.8mm Support X/Y Distance gave me the best results. Additionally, if your Z setting is too close or far away, your part will deform and will not be as crisp as it can be.
There is a ton of other useful stuff on Makersteve.com and more coming every week.
