Yes, you can. But it is not intuitive to do so at first. You need to add both models to the build plate, then enable support globally and then using the "per object settings", search for the "generate support" setting and assign it to the model which should be printed without support.

Then (and that's the important part), you need to check the box "generate support" for the model where you don't want support, let Cura slice once and then uncheck the box again.

I'd say this is a user interface bug. Cura should pick up the state of the check box automatically but due to the way it works - all new "per object settings" are added in a non-selected state and this presumably breaks the setting detection.

    That's a bug that I have not heard. Have you reported it before?

    Note that I don't have to wait for Cura to slice it with the incorrect checkbox setting. I turn on "Generate Support" in the Per Model Settings box and turn it off again.

    Well,

     

    at least for me, there was no way to get support in a specific area. Support globally enabled, Model support for that grey cubic model in the back enabled, no support for that large model - ending up in no support at all. Tried all combinations. *|
