How do you use the support mesh function?

Posted · How do you use the support mesh function?

In my other post I was trying to sort out printing something that's connected to the bet by a point without it wobbling and falling or having a LOT of support. One thing that was suggested was using the new function in the beta release which is the support mesh function. I cant get it to show up when i select it. He shows it making a cage around the point which is what im after, so how do you use it?

    Support mesh pretty much means; "Print this object as it it's support". You use it in the per object settings, as you need to mark an object as being the support object.
