Use less PVA

I saw this in the new Simplify3D 4 release info...I hope Cura does something similar.

I'm going to download it next week, I'm up to my mother in laws on Thursday and will also be picking up the parts to service all my shafts, bearings, belts and pullyies etc.

Agreed, which is why it has been in Cura for a few releases now ;) It's called support interface.

I wish you guys produced short video tutorials on new features like that. There's a lot of neat things in Cura and if you guys put out some short media content like you do for the Ultimaker, that could be a win.

I wish we did too. But I'm already juggling (too) many things at the moment.

I know the Ultimaker company has a really good video/production team they work with. Maybe move that idea upstream to the bosses !
