Support structures can be generated with both Skeinforge and Slic3r. We'll experiment with them using the jellyfish model we made in this chapter and a new model shown in the following image:
This model will be good to illustrate some issues that can occur when generating support and how they can be solved by making adjustments in the slicer.
We'll also save the different G-code files that we generate when we run our tests and view them with a G-code viewer. This will save the time and expense of printing multiple copies.
