Prusa has a really good feature where after adding supports you can export the file as an STL with the supports. I means if I add supports and the model fails to print properly because I didnt add enough/correct supports then all I have to do is reload the STL with supports and add a few more. Instead of doing ALL the supports all overagain.
Also means I can support a number of models individually then when I know they print correctly all I have to do is fill up the build plate with a number of pre supported models increasing my productivity.
Yes and that is good ...unfortunately when you reload the model as soon as you change anything the supports dissapear. EG I supported a model printed it then realised it was too small. reloaded the model with the supports as soon as I resized the model the supports dissapeared meaning I had to start all over again. Now if I could of saved the original supported model as an STL (like Prusa slicer) when I reloaded the model to resize it the supports would of already stayed in place. meaning all I would of had to do was add 1 or 2 new supports to the newer larger model.
