    The software I have seen makes really heavy build supports that strikes me as wasteful and tough to remove particularly if you have a hollow object.

    So for you guys who have makerbots or comparable what software do you use for the support material?

    Thanks.

    Nobody? I figured there had to be somebody with a view on this.

    I use cura. in the advanced settings you can alter the amount of support. It has lots of features and is very adaptable.

    What software do you use?

    I have used a lot of the higher end SLA machines that are twice the size of a soda vending machine so I really don't know the softwares for the smaller consumer units. I know some are proprietary and only suited to one machine.

    Can Cura be used on any machine?
