How to config Infill support hold ?

Thanks for the project file. Yes, Cura will not add support under the bottom of those cylindrical shapes so it is not really printable at the moment. You have 2 obvious options. Either increase the infill density (maybe use another pattern) so that the cylinders do touch the infill. Or, better still, continue the cylinders down to the bottom of the part (that's what I would do).

    Actually, I forgot, you can set the skin expand distance to 10 or more and it will span the gap.

    Cura next version can support or fix problem ?


    I do not think so as the model can so easily be fixed (by extending the cylinders to the bottom).
