Add and delete some support,
Finally, the support is finished,
Start printing and wait for a long time.
When opening the 3D printer, He may see a bunch of perfect supports or a disarster scense.
It happened frequently that the printing failed because the supports is added improperly. In this case, he need to repeat the previous steps and print again. To make sure the next printing successful, He needs to check the slice layer by layer to see if any support is missing or edit supports to make the supports stronger. These problems make him a headache.
By a coincidence, Pu Jinghao got a magic tool called Voxeldance Tango (developed by Voxeldance).
He is surprised after using it. The automatic support of Voxeldance Tango is not only suitable for big parts, also for small parts.
The smart support will not consume resin as it seems, but save material.
“ Compared with other software, Voxeldance Tango makes the support generation easier and the verification less. Though I still verify every slicing layer, I won't feel insecure as before.” Pu Jinghao says .
