Support Strategy, Creatr 2.1

Hi Everyone, What support method do you use when printing your 3D Models. My printer before this was a Dremel and it used kinda of like a Tree Trunk / Branch structure to support lips and overhangs on objects being created. I find that when using the "Support" option in Support Strategy it does not preview the Support Structure correctly and it appears VERY wasteful. Any thoughts?

Are you sure the support structures are enabled in your profile?


Also make sure to select the support profile before you preview the gcode.
