About the supporting material

Recommended Posts

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. *|

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
