Printing support material in Cura

Recommended Posts

I'm new to this stuff having just built my machine and it's printing well generally. I'm trying to turn on support in Cura from none to Exterior only , but although I get a message with the options , the actual box is dead and I don't seem to be able to change it from none whatever I do.

Is there some other command that makes the box live ? or am I just being a bit slow?

I'm running 13.04 on a Mac.

I too had this baffling problem for some time, and the solution is simple,

Just drag the edge of that part of the window a little to the right and it will appear.

Cura seems to have that part of the window a bit to small at startup :)

    • "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.
