Any advice on modeling support structures?

Recommended Posts

Any advice out there on creating support structures in the model?  Like support style or patterns that work best?  Material efficient methods?

I created these rings to hold up the countersunk ledge.  I sank them 0.1mm below the ledge but they still stuck pretty good and I had to drill them out.
