Hi

no the built in support blocker is just a cube. 

I am not sure, but you can try if you can achieve it with the per model settings. You can create an object in CAD, put it on the build plate and then choose per model settings in the left menu. You can configure a lot of settings where the object overlaps your model, but I am not sure if you also can choose support blocker for it.

    Hi ahoeben

     

    This thread is of course a little old but I have looked at your suggestion and cannot figure out how to do it. Could you perhaps elaborate a little how you can make any model a support blocker?

    Hi all, 

    This might be a stupid question but does anyone know where the 'support blocker' icon has gone in the new Ulitmaker version 4.7.0?

     

    Currently these are the only icons from the left toolbar and be buggered if I can work out how to add a support blocker.

     

    Any assistance greatly appreciated

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
