Hi,

Brand new to Ultimaker and Cura, just got new Ultimaker and trying to use it to print some logos with a small loop at the top to hang from ceiling. The loop is just a bit of the ground, so it needs a support structure.

The problem I'm having is the support structures Cura is outputting are SO DENSE and THICK they are virtually impossible to break away or separate from the object. It's going way overboard here. It's printing almost a solid build through the center of the hole, just to support the top. Yet I've seen other projects (like the Ultimaker handle) that prints out with holes just fine.

Are there settings in Cura that I'm missing to control the Support Structure density, etc? All I can find is basically on or off (Support type: Exterior Only or Everywhere). I assume Obviously "Exterior Only" is all I want, but what it's laying down is as thick as the object itself.

What am I missing? Any help greatly appreciated!
