>use the support blocker ( 6th icon on the left side missing a tool tip ) to generate a generic cube model OR add a model of your own for custom shapes 

> select the model you just placed

> select Per Model Settings ( 5th icon down on left side also missing tool tip )

> change the mesh type to "Modify Settings For Overlaps"

> hit the "select settings" button and add the "infill density" option

> set the infill density as required ( in my case I needed 100% infill for a section of my model ) 

> move the model/mesh to where you need it. 


The end result is a model with different infill densities as specified by the overlapping of the modified "support blocker" model/mesh.

    I only wanted to create a strong support in one section of the print.

    All supports in a print, be they automatic or "print as support" manual, share the same settings.
