When it comes to FDM/FFF based 3D printing, there is nothing that unnerves me more than having to spend time removing support material from printed objects. There have been cases where I have spent 4 hours (no joke) removing support material from an object that took just 3 hours to print. There have been other times when I’ve destroyed 3D printed objects trying to pry away stubborn supports. I know others who have actually harmed themselves in the process, needing to visit the emergency room to get stitches on their fingers and hands due to the sharp tools required for the process.
