Posted · how to printing overlaps as support

Hey @hendeliao,


Welcome to the Ultimaker Community 🎉


Honestly, Cura is not built to alter meshes in this way, that's what CAD software is for. 



But if you change your mesh modifier to a cutting mesh with these settings, you can print something like this. Which can be removed as easily as support... I think. 

If you want support to behave very specifically, I would create the mesh and assign it to be printed as support. 


There are also plugins like this Cylindric Custom Support which can really help you build the support you need. 

Was this the type of tips you were looking for?
