That looks like the back end of the "Orville" which does not have a straight line on it. It seems that you may have your support on the piece a bit strong. What support settings are you using?

 

Edit: Also, what slicer?

Try this setup:

1. To test your breakaway supports (assuming you are using one extruder), sink below the buildplate to minimize time and materials.

2. I will sometimes cheat a bit on the quality settings for support by lowering the support line width. This can make the supports more flimsy though, so,,,,,up to you.

3. Play with the Support Z distance to find a balance between supporting and just not enough contact.

Cura 2.x has the same properties I am showing. No need to cut the model, just move it below the plate. You will probably have to turn off the "Automatically drop models to buildplate." so it is easy to do so. But, everything else is available that I used or mentioned.

Those are the things I know to do. I actually use PVA for my supports. But perhaps you can look at a thing or two such as maybe less dense supports or even maybe playing a bit with the angle so that you have less support.

You dialed the separation down to less-than-one-layer (It'll round up)?

 

You could play with the interfaces (support floor/ceiling), that should help.

 

If you're desperate, perhaps lower temps would help, but you shouldn't have to do that.

    • "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.
