    I recently purchased a Robo R1+ and I love the thing! It came with MatterControl software, which I updated to version 2.0. Here's my issue. The majority of what I print are 32mm gaming miniatures. They all require supports. I haven't been able to make the support pillars smaller than 1.5. When you have a 1.5 diameter support on a 1mm turret barrel, it's not the pillar that's going to snap off when you clean the print. I've written MatterHackers about it, but have yet to get a reply. So I'm taking it to the users.

    What do you guys recommend?

    A different slicer? You can likely get that to work with some tweaking.

    While these days most miniatures we do end up being done on a resin printer, we often test print them on an FDM and for that I use Simplify3D and a 0.25 nozzle.
