Request for new feature : Overhanging support material

Instead of having support material that can only go up vertically at 90 degrees, it would be nice to have support material that could go up to particular height and then start overhanging until its under the part that needs to be supported.

In the attached file / picture:
Black represents the object.
Green is the support material.
Blue is extra adhesion support material to keep the leaning support attached to the build plate.

There are Many free Slicers that support many different supports.


here are the 20 Best
[all3dp.com]

I use Cura, Idealmaker, MatterControl, Meshmixer, Netfabb and Slic3r.

All Free be careful, sometimes switching Slicers causes my 3D Printers "3DD11/3DP12" to be reconfigured by the slicers and I have to restore factory defaults to correct.

M502 ; Restore Factory
M500 ; Store Settings

Meshmixer has a Manual install support, Select where to start and stop supports.
