    So is there a way in Simplify3D to say I only want support to begin at a certain point, or on a certain part of the model?

    You can create custom support structures where you want them but I don't recall if you can make them start anywhere you want.

    With the manual / custom ones you can start them anywhere legal :)

    EDIT: Simplify3D's channel has a lot of videos on how to do various things in the software that a lot of people never really spend any time thinking about (or may not know to look for) that would make slicing just the right kind of program for the part they want to make easier.

    Specifically, this playlist.
