OK. I’m wondering if anyone has any secrets for removing supports. I have played with settings and reduced them as much as possible but some of my prints just cant be done without them and I can not believe how hard it is to get them off. And when I do get them off it always seems to have a messed up surface under the supports.
I am running a Lulzbot mini and absolutely love it. Super easy to run and getting some consistent nice prints with it, but no matter what I change in the supports settings, I cant seem to make any improvement in making the supports even reasonably easy to remove.
I primarily use ABS, but have the same problems with HIPS and PLA.
I am stuck with single material prints so running a dual head with HIPS and ABS mixed isnt possible.
Are there any settings that will help make the supports removable? I am using pliers s and a dremel now and am still having trouble with getting them off. I have them turned back to 10% and tried increasing the gaps in the expert settings but it doesn’t seem to make any difference.
Any tips? Thanks in advance.
BTW I’m not sure if this should go in the Hardware or the software section so I am guessing here and just putting this question in Hardware.
