It might cause some impact on model when removing supports. Thus, setting supports on complex surface should be avoided. Considering the overall structure is crucial as well. Supports should be distributed evenly. Follow the tips below and you can present model perfectly!

 

Tips for setting 3D printing supports

1.     Adjust supports’ diameter and quantity according to the size, structure, and resin feature of model. We suggest the minimum support contact area to the model should range between 0.4mm to 0.6mm for teeth model and surgical guide.

2.     Set supports on each lowest spot.
