Support material and fill lines
May 27, 2012 06:02AM

I just started to print with my repstrap machine and i founf slic3r an excellent work but i have a couple of issues. After few tests i found that the support material lines are too thick and attach to my piece giving me a hard time to remove. In contrary the infill lines are too thin, as a result the lines of one layer dont stick to the other.

I use 0.5mm nose in my extruder. What i try to overcome the problem of infills is to reduce layer height from 0.3mm to 0.25mm then the infill lines are perfect but the outer perimeter is messy and the support material even harder to remove.

If i can suggest a few thinks. It will be nice to have control over the extrusion rate for both the infills and the support material and the support material stops a litle bit away of the piece.

As i am new in this area maybe my suggestions are stupid and there is another way to solve my problem, so any advice is welcome.

Thank you for the great software
