I have not been able to find how to get tree supports.  How do I enable it so I can select it for my prints?

 

I don't think it makes a difference but I am using Cura 4.9.1 with a Monoprice Make Select Pro Ultimate printer.

    It is theoretically possible for a printer definition to remove the option to select "Tree" from that list. Since Ultimaker Cura does not come with a definition of the "Monoprice Make Select Pro Ultimate" printer, I wonder what printer definition you use.

    I use the Monoprice Ultimate printer definition.  I believe it came with one of the previous versions of Cura I downloaded.  I don't see anything in it that would remove the "Tree" option.

    I use a Creality 3D Printer. I have the same problem. I can only find " Support normal" . There is no tree support listed

     

    Best regards

    It is there. You will find it under support structure.

    I found this option after previously not being able to see it. Next to the "Search Settings" there is a three-bar menu. Select "Advanced." Now you can configure support infill and enable tree support.

      • 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
