Hi Dave

I admit to being a little confused. A picture might help.

I'll have a guess though
Are you getting a nice even recoat across the last layer of the flat surface and the first few layers of the supports? If not I would suggest adding another sweep for a few layers.

Hello all,

I'm running into a support issue when supporting a flat area above another flat area. Basically, the flats are parallel to each other and the platform. Distance is irrelevant . The beginning support from the platform to the first flat is fine. It's the bottom of the support structure (which should attach from the top surface of the bottom flat) seems to lose itself as it grows higher and eventually doesn't attach to the bottom surface of the above flat. At times I lose most of the support but some grows in the "stringy, fuzzy" mode. I've increased the overcure and also increased the bottom contact. Sometimes this works but I still have issues. I hope I didn't confuse anyone. Any suggestions will help.
