Support Material Generation options

Tue Oct 08, 2013 6:23 pm

Imagine printing a simple model of the Golden Gate Bridge on an M2. The uprights of the bridge are along the Z axis and the road platform is along the X axis. How do I adjust the support generation functions in Creator to generate support material for the road platform? Assume the road platform is parallel to the bed or near parallel.

Can this support material be printed with a brim so it will stick (reliably) to the bed?

The only way I have found to make the supports adhere to the bare bed consistently is to print with a raft of several layers.
