Feature Request: new support structure

Recommended Posts

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1741139/#files

There's a specific pattern on the top part of this model, which enables ffd printer to print a flat surface without support material touching “ground”.

Part designer has arranged small bridges (over bridges, over bridges,..) under the roof of the box so that ff 3d printers that are capable producing about 2cm bridges, can built the roof without support structure touching floor.

Could cura add this pattern to model automatically?

this would greatly speedup ffd printing and saving filament.

    • "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.
