Cura slicing for Support Material

Hi Daid,

I have a "suggestion"

If you make long thin object - the the distance between support "bars" can sometimes get very small - leading to support is very hard to get off. Maybe try to space support walls "evenly" if there are a few. And again - when you get close to an endpoint - more even spacing of the support material.

So if distance is set to 0.7 - then a support structure will be placed for every 0.7 - but if there is not 0.7 mm to an endpoint - another support wall will be placed at anywhere from 0.2? to 0.6 - pushing them very hard together.

My preference would be to use 0.7 as a guide line - and have support walls spaced evenly. So all support walls would be 0.5-0.7 mm apart if the math solves.

I would also like to see something like the fluf settings from Netfab for support. They are usually enough. The Cura support is (IMHO) a bit heavy handed :) with amount of material.

    Hello I'd very much like the ability to adjust the distance between the support and an object if possible, as all the prints I have printed with support seems to stick too well. Also an idea for the new support: 4 layers before the support hits the object, put down 2 solid layers on the top of the infill, and 2 very light "interface" layers

    Hello Daid,

    I use HIPS for support material. So I can dissolve HIPS easily to get main material. Can you please make arrangement in next version to seal top of infill.
