Disappearing supports!

Postby Mikkopee » Thu Jun 04, 2020 6:11 am

Many times after merging file or copying objects some supports are disappearing!

Here is video about it. I have scene and I merge new ring and some supports disapper. And even if I move object and click Restore supports those are gone. This happens a lot. And its really annoying coz you never know is the all supports there after moving/copying object or merging a scene.

I believe if you add something to a Scene it moves the objects to make room. This will cause the supports to be cleared/removed. You will need to add supports normally.

I have had this happen to me recently as well Mikkopee. Pretty sure this did not happen in some of the earlier versions. I just upgraded to 2.3.6 to get the SolusWax Pro profile so will see if it still occurs in that version for me next time I print.

The number one reason I merge scenes is to not have to re apply supports every time I print the same design. If you loose the supports during merge it defeats the purpose of saving scenes for me. If the supports are not included you may as well just reimport the stl file.

cheers,
