Migrating: For MatterControl 2.0 the MatterControl documentation is moving to matterhackers.com/mattercontrol/support/.
This page is in the process of being migrated. It's new home will be matterhackers.com/mattercontrol/support/slice-settings/support/support#support-percent.

A screenshot of the Support Percent setting as seen in MatterControl's SETTINGS pane.


The percentage of extrusion width that overlaps on the previous layer which will trigger support material generation.

This replaces the Amount setting which was deprecated starting in version 1.5.


  • percent (%)


  • Little : 10%
  • Standard : 50%
  • Lots : 90%
  • Custom : user-defined



In this example, a layer with an extrusion width which hangs 50% off over the previous layer will have support material generated.
