Tree Support doesn't turn on the indicator in the summary bar

Recommended Posts

Posted · Tree Support doesn't turn on the indicator in the summary bar

I know the feature Tree Support is experimental, but I've been having excellent results on some models, which means I often have it turned on when I open CURA.

 

Unfortunately, it doesn't toggle the indicator icon in the summary bar so Support shows as Off when it's actually going to generate Tree Support.

 

Is it possible to modify the flag so that any kind of Support turns the indicator On?

 

I would also suggest that when Tree Support and Conical Support are not experimental, it would be more convenient to select Support as a dropdown - None/Standard/Tree/Conical. In fact, if possible, it might be convenient to have it before then - None/Standard/Tree(Exp)/Conical(Exp).

 

I know this is a minor request since the only downside is having to open the settings, turn off Tree Support and re-slice, but it would draw attention to the fact that Support was on as it does slow down the slicing process and can waste several minutes when it's known that a model won't need support.

 

Thanks.
