Adjusting Cura settings

Recommended Posts

I have been seeing post related to adjusting the X, Y and Z settings for the supports that Cura builds but I have not been able to see where these are adjusted while searching through the advanced settings.

I am also looking to see if I can selectively "turn off" some areas of support material while leaving supports in the areas that I choose.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

Are you using Cura 2.4?

If so, there is a special per-object setting called "anti-overhang mesh". The intersection of a printed object with an object that has the anti-overhang mesh property won't have support. It's not an ideal interface just yet, but we wanted to get the functionality out there already (instead of waiting until we have a fully perfect bit of funcitonality).

This is also why it's kind of hidden.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
