I want to print directly to the Build Platform but need a few manually placed supports on the object. How do I add a support from a specific point to another specific point without generating a support base? I am able to manually place supports but Preform determines whether or not to use a lower section of the model to attach the support or to create a base plate.
So, If I were able to manually select both ends of the support, the issue would be resolved.
I totally support(!) this idea. I often print parts that are best positioned straight on the platform, but need support in one or two overhang areas. I currently have to model the supports in by hand in CAD.
There needs to be an option to create a base, i.e. point to base support, for those areas that overhang. The base should be at the same level as the part, not below it.
That might be something that would be a while for them to add, until then you’d have to make your own supports, not a huge issue but not super convenient. At some point it would be nice to control supports like that just in general.
