I have the ultimaker 2+ extended but my question is more about the support section of Cura. Sometime I need support in place that are not touching the building plate but I have some small holes that doesn't need support so I was wondering if there was a option to choose individualy the place I need support and the place I don't?. I'll still use the automatic support finder that the software use when you see red at the support place but I would like to choose which one I want to keep.

Hi @Jeremi , the option closed to your request is 'support blocker' in Cura. It allows you to select places on your 3D model where there will be no support. 

If you search for 'support blocker' on our forums you should find enough information about it.
