Support Parameters here are for general support settings, user could go to Support Editor for more detailed tuning of supports.
Angle Threshold for support, the larger this angle the more support will be generated
Number of interface layer (Support Top Layer) between object and support column. Support top layer also added between raft and part bottom surface, so this option will also increase apparent thickness of raft structure.
Area Threshold of overhang surface, overhang area smaller than this will not be supported.
Length Threshold of overhang edge. Overhang edge shorter than this will not be supported.

Only applied to point or edge features.Top lift represent the height which the support will “wrap” above the actual supporting point or edge. If the part contain pointy features that is facing down, it is recommend to increase top lift options.
Layers: How many layer the raft will consist
Layer Heights: Layer thickness of raft
Base Width: Path width of the first 2 layers of raft
Expand: How much to expand from the perimeter of the bottom layer for the raft layer
Raft infill mode, Profile mode is for Tiertime printer only, the raft is generated by printer. The pattern is not visible at this stage. The hatch and offset are for non-Tiertime printer, Tiertime machines cannot use these 2 types.
