A support apparatus for use in conjunction with an ALM system having a printing head being movable with respect to the support apparatus. The support apparatus a dynamic surface configured to support a printed 3D item thereon during fabrication thereof by the printing head, the dynamic surface being manipulable between a first position, at which the dynamic surface has a first concavity with respect to the printing head, and a second position, at which the dynamic surface has a second concavity with respect to the printing head, the second concavity being greater than the first concavity; and a manipulating mechanism operable to induce manipulation the dynamic surface at least from the first position to the second position.
