Can someone give me an overview on print support material and how it works in practice.

Hi Hushesie

In my experience (a single print!) enabling support material is as simple as checking the appropriate box in slic3r (in Print Settings).
This will then generate a zig-zag like column beneath any overhang, Sadly I didn't photograph the print I did with supports.
It was very easy to remove and didn't seem to use an excessive amount of extra filament.

There's a good write-up of support material in the Slic3r manual: [manual.slic3r.org]
