trouble remove supports

Post by tomasparks » Fri Dec 26, 2014 3:12 pm

I am trying to print winddragon_a.stl from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:151676
I done three prints, but i've destroyed/damaged the model :oops:
  • I've broken off the railing supports
  • damaged the rear while removing the suppoting
I've printed with the base Only:
  • the head prints poorly
  • the rear print fully supported :evil: WTF
I've adjust the support dense down to 2 layers, space: 12 lines (think) and area to 10mm

sould I start playing with the support angles?
I cant understand the manual about support area

using Up! mini

Are you printing with OEM filament or third-party plastic?

Are you scaling the model down, or printing full size?
