Rafts and Supports plus software advice for a newbie

Sac110 2018-1-8 15:51 edit

I did my first big print today on a new phone case, i printed with a raft but where the holes and the buttons are there are supports. My problem is that both are so hard to get off.

Took a while and i was just on the last bit round the upper bend and buttons but it would not budge in the end it ended up snapping some of the case.

Is there anything i can do to make it easier to remove next time and also to use less material on the raft itself?

also with regards to software how would i set up cura, i have looked but i dont know about g-code so is there any way i can set it just on the software.
