I'm new to Cura so sorry for y lack of knowledge in this app. So I have made a dragons head and when I use the support it does not fully connect or just does not go all the way up to support the horns or teeth, so the picture I have uploaded it shows you half of the tooth is done and the other half the tip is not showing cause of the support and that also is happening to the horns in the second picture it shows you highlighted horns so the yellow is why isn't the support going all the way up there to the horn and the green highlight the not fully finished part  I don't know what to do

    When you get a splice like that horn where you see a layer all by itself then that usually indicates either an error in the model, or a feature that is too fine for your nozzle and line width.  When that is the case, Cura doesn't recognize that the area needs support because it can't interpret the model.

    First things first - go to Service.Netfabb.com and create a free account.  Upload the model.  The model will be repaired and then you can download the fixed version.

    If you haven't done so, enable "Shell / Print Thin Walls" (it can help with fine details) and re-slice the fixed model and see how it goes.

     

    Those teeth are going to be tough to get right.  They will need support but they are so small that removing the support without breaking a tooth will be difficult.

    If you can post the STL file here then maybe @kmanstudios can take a look.  I think you'll need an artist's advice more than a guy who prints plastic angle iron parts.

    That missing part is odd looking,  but the advice is spot on. If you do post the file, I will be happy to take a look. 🙂

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
