If I understand correctly what you're saying, the problem you mention already exists. If you choose 'touching buildplate' or 'everywhere' it is universal for the whole model (according the overhang settings ofc)? I don't think my suggestion would have any effect on that. What I'm suggesting would only add an additional filter to limit the supported areas. A good usage may be 'everywhere' plus limited areas per the user preference.
I suppose you could add a second or third sketch plane and place support only in the intersected volumes, but it seems overly complicated.Edited by Guest
I do like the approach due to it's simplicty, but it doesn't solve the problem entirely. How would you tell Cura to print certain supports that are not touching the build plate in this way (and others that are touching the buildplate, but also inside the area to be not printed?)
