In the settings there are two I am not sure of.
1) Create a perimeter, what if any, is the advantage.
2) Support everywhere. As the name suggests it will add support where ever it thinks it's needed, but what happens if this is unchecked,
Hmm, seems nobody wants to answer my Questions.
Ernie, I'm sorry. I saw this late on Friday and meant to answer Monday at the latest, then forgot.
Specific information about all slice settings can be found on the wiki. Here's a link to the Support Material page: http://wiki.mattercontrol.com/Settings/General/Support_Material
1) A perimeter around the support material helps make it more rigid. Lines by themselves can topple, but a perimeter keeps all the lines connected to each other and gives the whole structure more integrity.
2) Enabling Support Everywhere adds support material starting on top of the model, too. Disabled, support material will only be generated from the bed up.
It's OK Ryan, we all tend to forget things over a weekend.
Thanks, I was wondering about it, because it tends to put support where I dont need it .ie small holes.
Tried this out, love the perimeter bit especially on larger areas.
I found something curious with the turning of the everywhere bit, when it was on it was filling small holes and they where always distorted, at first I thought it was a bad setting on one of the Axis, but since unchecking the add support everywhere this has gone away, so seems as though the support is forcing things a little.
