One of the things I’d hoped to use my Snapmaker2 for was printing 3D miniatures for my D&D games. I’m not having problems with the prints per-se, but I have yet to be able to remove the supports from a mini without breaking it in some way. I’ve tried various options on the support panel like changing the pattern from zig-zag to lines and I’ve tried reducing the density from 15 to 5% figuring the less material I’m removing the less likely I’d be to break things (though that doesn’t seem to be holding up).
I’m printing with the material black PLA material that came with the unit.
This what the typical final print looks like:
And what I end up with if I’m lucky… (not the same mini as above)
I’m using needle-nose tweezers to try and gently pull off the support material but sometimes pulling the support takes away the base model as well.
Any suggestion or pointers would be greatly appreciated!
