How to use Special Modes in Cura

Recommended Posts

Using the Special Modes has not been immediately obvious to me. I have the settings checked but they do not show up in the short list.

Specifically, how do I use the support mesh? Do I have to have the right objects loaded into Cura to activate the setting capabilities?

Support Mesh is a special one. It only works in the Per Model Settings tool. Using the Per Model Settings tool, you can make an object be printed as supports. It is an - as yet not very userfriendly, but very capable - way to print custom supports.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
