Automatic support generation for 3D models

Some additive manufacturing processes require supports for the models. Either to make sure overhanging parts are made correctly or to support objects for postprocessing.

DMC generates supports based on the model surface angle. Both, the bottom of the model or internal parts can be supported. To make sure support structures are easily removed, process parameters like hatching distance, laser power, and scanning speed can be selected separately for supports and their tips (parts touching or close to the model).
