    Congrads! How did you get it to print?

    Lower your support density.

    Looking at my support settings is there a way to print less material inside the hollow Bridge?

    Great info guys, many thanks. I am using version 3.6.0 as any newer version does not work on my older Macbook.

    Oh ya don't use spiralise Outer Contour that will only give you 1 wall.

    What version of Cura are you using? Not that it matters it is just different than the latest.
    I use Wall Line Count and Top and Bottom Layers not Thickness. I have a rough idea of the thickness by looking at the Line Width under Quality? Use that to figure out the rest. For example I use 0.4mm Line Width. My walls are 2mm so 2 / 0.4 = 5 wall count. My tops are 3-5 layers and my bottoms are 0-3.

    Personal perference, I don't use rafting it uses to much material. I like 10 count on brim.

    Hope that helps.

    Randy, it is 12. What should top layers be? For thicker walls what should I change?

    Thanks guys, I will try using a “raft”. My last attempt is better, using “spiralise Outer Contour” and disabling “Union Overlapping Volumes”. The walls are too thin, lol
