In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
You have Cura set for support "Everywhere"?
I looks like that feature comes to a point on the bottom and it's possible that your "Minimum Support Area" is set to high.
You can also add Support Blockers (or custom supports) then use the Per Model settings to configure them to "Print as Support".
This is with support turned off but the blocker is configured to Print as Support. They can be moved and scaled like any other mesh.
