Parts of support starts "mid air" a few layers in to print?

Posted (edited) · Parts of support starts "mid air" a few layers in to print?

So, I am running Cura 4.4.1/Win64 and I have noticed that on several models as of late parts of the support seem to start "mid air" usually around layer 4.  This, of course, generally does not work very well. And I can not figure out if I have messed with a setting, or if this is actually a bug. Any help appreciated. On the enclosed file, that a look at layer 4 and 11 on the "outer" support.

    Try with support placement set to touching build plate  and support pattern as grid


    That (changing to grid) seem to have fixed it... Any idea as to why?

        (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.
