Ive been using Cura for a while now and a question i had was about the Cura supports. Cura seems to put down a lot of unnecessary supports. is there a way I can make this software use less supports? Thanks.

    There are many options for adjusting the amount of support. 

    By default supports normally extend past the print by 3mm or so which you can adjust with the support horizontal expansion setting.

    There is a Support blocker to stop unwanted support

    Also the support angle can be adjusted. I find I can normally print fine up to 60deg and default is set to 45deg. 

     

    This page Here will give you a lot of useful information to improve your supports.
