I am trying to create custom supports in Cura 5.2.1. As you can see I need supports under the hands. Here is what I have so far. I have support placement Everywhere and then I used support blockers. My question is how to I get supports right under the hands and not from the top of the arm up to the hands covering the trophy handle?

    Attached is the stl file. 

     

    I found the same stl file but with tree support built in. The tree support didnt do too well. Although I guess it could have been a bed leveling issue, but I havent had any issues with any of my other prints and I did recheck the bed all was fine.

    Personally I would print it with PVA as support, but I'm guessing you don't have dual extrusion. 

    My best bet would be to try the tree support, or modeling the support your self.

    An other option would be to print the arms separate and glue them on.

    @MariMakes This is work correct? In the sense that where the blocks are placed supports shouldnt be built there correct?

    Hey @Beretta031,

    I believe what you are seeing is expected.
    Support generates in the areas that are red if you look at the bottom of the model. 
    If a support blocker is placed over these red ares, these areas will not be supported.
    In your case support is generated for the hands and not for the trophee handles.
    You can read more about it here.

    I printed the tree support mentioned above and it came out great.

      • 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
