Prusa Slicer doesn't create "forced support material" for this model

Hello everyone,

I am a newcomer in 3D printing and I was going to print out a cover for my yogurt.

When putting in the .stl file and enabling support: "everything" weirdly it only created support for the sides. Both settings for the generating the support material are enabled.

I tried using the "force paint support" tool and did this:

.. but I got the same result as before. No new support was created. I also tried adding support material with forceblocks but that also didn't work. My friend also tried it but it didn't work for him either.

I uploaded the .stl file here for anyone who would like to try it out themselves:

Go to:

Print settings/Support material /options for support material and Raft, and un-tick the box that says Don't support bridges.

 

Enjoy

@swiss_cheese

That helped, thanks a lot for the quick answer!
Looks like this now, probably need to tweak some of the settings but happy that it works now!
