Not seeing optimal results from results of the Minimum Support Orientation block


The Minimum Support Orientation block is designed to generate a series of solutions to orient an object using minimum support material. This block does not always create the optimal result.

Applies to:

  • nTop 2.28
  • Additive Manufacturing


We are evaluating potential fixes for this issue with a future release.


Currently, the workaround is to manually orient the object and generate support structures.
