Using MeshMixer Slicing packages like Cura build support at a low-density mesh that generally covers the meshmixxer to be supported, and then stops a layer or two short of the intended support point, providing a backstop for any drooping parts that need supporting, while being able to be broken away with relative ease. Meshmixer lets you specify the angles of the surfaces that need support, and the size and packing density of the medhmixer pillars.
