    Any recommendations in taking off the supports easier? They seem to really be sticking to the print. I currently have a jab in my thumb from an Xacto accident lol

    I read somewhere that I could change the supports to a 0.5mm distance but where can I do that inside Cura?


    Currently printing the Stay Puft man for my nephew.

    Use small flush cutters instead of an X-Acto?

    They have a lot of other uses too, so it is a good tool to have in your toolbox.

    You need to edit the list of settings in cura and enable display of those options

    Cura -> Click any of the gears along the right-hand side
    Settings -> Setting Visibility -> Check All -> Close button
    Back on the main screen again, right-hand side of screen and assuming that you've checked the box for "Print Support Structure" already,
    Custom -> drill into the Support area
    Now try hovering over the settings in this area and they'll indicate what they do.
