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!
