Ultimaker not generating all the support

What settings are needed to get Ultimaker Cura to generate ALL of the support for this model?

 

There's plenty of support under the wings however the tail is unsupported.

 

Support settings used are the default for support. I played around a bit and it made zero difference so better to ask than manually attempt the billions of settings variations.

 

Thanks

    Ummm. Ok.

     

     

     

    I used 3.6 and 3.4. Obviously the printer doesn't matter because no printer can print into thin air.

     

    Given that you're saying that Cura is not expected to handle this...

    Can you recommend other software then that does handle such a fundamental requirement of 3d printing?

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
