So, this might be a dumb question, but why does support material look so solid? It seems like it is using a lot more plastic than it needs too. Most supports I've seen build a solid column all the way up to the piece that needs supported. I think these are generally one perimeter and fairly weak, but it still seems like extra work and filament. Why doesn't the software build more of a tree? Have a trunk then branch near the top where supports are needed. As long as the branches don't exceed 45 degrees they shouldn't need support themselves right? It might end up being solid at the top but I think it would use less material and provide the same effect. This is just a general question I know each program handles support differently and has nothing to do with the BB itself.
