Anti-overhang Support Mesh?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, first time posting here. I'm using 2.6.2 (just now downloaded the 2.7 beta as well) but I can't for the life of me figure out how to use the anti-overhang mesh tool. What I'm trying to do is have cura generate support for a model, but then use my second model (that becomes the mesh, I suppose) to delete a small section of support that I don't want. However, I can't locate any "collision" or "keep objects apart" buttons, and every time I try to move my anti-overhang support mesh into my model, they reorient so they stay separate. Also, I cannot move my mesh up off the build plate (or away from Z 0). Maybe I don't understand what this operation is actually supposed to do, but I can't get it to do anything for the life of me. Thanks!

    • "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.
