Cura is not generating supports in needed areas my printer

would be trying to print in mid air. I am attaching a screen shot

I believe the tail should have supports. Thankyou for your help.

sorry for 2 posts I forgot to attach screenshot in the first one.Capture.thumb.JPG.81dd952733fb905be86ea0d04e92e68a.JPG

it maybe due to the point of the tail, you can change the settings for the support if you click on the 3 dots next to the support selection. you can change the x-y distance and maybe the fill amount until you get the required result.

This is because Cura is looking for faces with a shallow downward-facing angle. That tail probably just has one single point at the bottom with several sufficiently steep faces.

That one's quite a stubborn bug. It hasn't been fixed in more recent versions either. I'd advise you to add a thin cylinder to your model to support the tail. It might also be a better idea to print the doggy upside-down and apply some sandpaper afterwards.
