I thought this was pretty cool and wanted to share with you guys.

I have been printing with Colorfab nGen recently (and loving it) and I recently had an adhesion issue where the support that was printing came loose. I took it out, and as the print continued, the material began to build up over that area in mid air. By the time it came to print the overhang, there was enough support material for the printer to work with. Pretty neat!

Hah, cool! You should be happy you did not abort the print.

How is the surface of your model around where the support is starting to form in mid air?

Sometimes the mysterious ways of a 3D print continue to amaze me ;)

Lol, yeah I never print with supports and often go for the print in mid air option too! sometimes you can be a bit unlucky and have a few holes at the bottom, but work well most of the time! I find that unless absolutely necessary, support and infill is just a waste of time.
