Anti-overhang Support Mesh?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Anti-overhang Support Mesh?

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!

Hi, in the Preferences dialog (general section) you will find check boxes that control the behaviour of keeping the models apart and forcing their butts onto the build plate. Uncheck those and you should have more luck!
