Support layer strange resolution 0.01mm. Bug or not ?

Support layer strange resolution 0.01mm. Bug or not ?  

Active Member

On a print of 0.07 height for the perimetres I've notice that my prusa mk3S clicking only on supports print.

Looking more closely at the slicing result in prusaslicer, I noticed that the slicer produce for support layer several layers of 0.01 height !


For me 0.01 height is too small even for the prusa mk3s.


Is this a slicer bug or is there a parameter to force the supports resolution to be the same height (equal of the perimeter height) ?

on the image below, between layer 120 and 121 there is 0.01 and we can see that it is not the only layer like that.

Thanks for your help

Sounds like an error that should be reported on PrusaSlicer GitHub as an issue. The developers will look here.

Have a look at my designs on Thingiverse or on PrusaPrinters ;)...

Supports are completely independent of the layer height but should be limited to the min/max defined in the printer extruder settings. So it definitely sounds like a bug and should be reported. 
There is a setting under print setttings to make supports match the object layer heights though in the meantime.

@area51 @neophyl

thanks for your replies. I will report it to the developpers.

I see the option "synchronize with object layer" in support material tab but it disabled. I've read that it can only enable for multi extruder but it's not my case :/.
