Cura - using rafts and supports


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura - using rafts and supports

Hi I am in Cura (13.06.4) for the first time. I cannot see where you instruct the job to use a raft- I have found certain settings for rafts in the Expert settings but it is a function to use one that I want - or is Cura clever enough to know the part will fall over :mrgreen:

Similalry with support material - can I tell the software to use support "there" and "there". I have read about manually assigning support material but maybe Cura does not have this capability?

    13.10 was released yesterday ;-)

    The "enable raft" is under "platform adhesion", but I advice Brim.

    "Manual select-able support" will most likely be a future feature. Right now it's only on/off.
