In this tutorial you will see how to generate support structures for metal printing, i.e. metal powder bed fusion. These support structures are important so as to minimize the residual stresses that occur during the build. The video shows you how to use the tools to design supports that will be strong enough to anchor the part, and will also be easy to remove after the build.
