Saving custom supports setup?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Saving custom supports setup?

Hey there, I'm setting up to print a file that has a lot of small based pieces with an overhang at the bottom sides. I dont want to generate all the supports cura wants to so I add a custom 3mm cylinder under each overhang to try to stop it from warping up and breaking off the base. There are a lot of them, like 40 or so. The custom support works but every time I add one I have to go into setting and include generate support and then close settings and check the box for generate. Is there a way to make it default to that so to not have to go thru that every time.  I mean its custom supports, why do I have to list and enable it every time I add one?

Can someone help with this. Am I missing something? Thanks.

        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.
