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.

Yes, you can make any model a support blocker using the mesh type in per model settings.

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?

      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
