Support Direction Request

Personal 4 Months+ 198

Currently to add manual supports you have to be looking at the model from the bottom or underside of the print to add a support. Can you set it up so that when you are looking at a top down view of the part you can add supports to the underside of the print?


E.g. After auto support, I use the slice view to pick up islands that have no auto generated support and place a support structure on it. The underside of the model gets very confusing with all the support thereand I still miss some of the islands. Now I go through the slice view 1 layer at a time from a top down view (fig. 1) and when I find an unsupported Iland I have to rotate the build plate around to place the support (fig 2)

    Maybe we have a better solution. We will release the professional version in the second half of the year.

    That would be great. What will be the proposed cost?
