Can you print this without support at all? Thanks for any help. M

I tried what you suggested and unfortunately the voronoi structure was compromised and the print was stopped.
Disappointing really that these structures are so difficult to print on an up...
Not necessarily ... it has a lot to do with the angles and rate of change that happens to be present. Voronis (and other complex organic patterns) are tedious to review the rate of overhang by eye. If you don't mind experimenting and using up your filament then try flipping it upside down - it might be more print friendly.mec949 wrote:Thanks. Maybe I'm doing something wrong
I have printed voroni and other dense cell structures before with using support and had no troubles. You might want to make your support more sparse. You also might have issues if you are printing the filament too hot (ie aftermarket filament without a temp mod) - printing with the wind barrier open may help a bit either way.
How do you print the support material :
More sparse (less actual support especially for voronoi)
What settings do I use?
Thank you again
Could try it one more time but not sure it is worth it.
If anyone here prints it, I'd love to see the results.
One comment though, on one side of the bracelet, there is a tight cell structure that is close enough spans that front need support, and is quite strong. If the whole bracelet was like that it would work a charm
