Cura 15.04 not generating supports

Recommended Posts

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.
