Support Blockers are now being seen as printable ??? help

So please explain in more detail.  Are you saying:

1) you loaded an stl file

2) You added some support blockers

3) Everything was good and it sliced right

4) then you saved it as a project

5) then you loaded the project

6 Now the support blockers are part of the print


Did I get that right?

    Was @ahoeben correct?  Did you save it as an STL by accident instead of a 3mf file?

    If you saved it as a stl file then problem solved but if you saved it as a 3mf file then please upload the 3mf file here and then also if you have the energy, please report the bug in github (you have to create a github account but the rest is easy).  This could be a very recent bug.  This worked for me the last time I tried it (I have a version of cura a few versions ago).


    I could create the bug report for you but it's so much better if the devs can ask you questions on github as some of them don't come to the forums much:

    Yes  @ahoeben was correct i did save it as a .stl file format due to me thinking it would save as i saw it all ready to print but i guess when i closed the file opened the NEW .stl file that had the support blocks it showed that it will print them due to thinking that it was apart of the project 


    Thanks for helping me and i did unfortunately deleted the original file that did not had the support blocks and such but i was able to remake the whole model in tinker CAD and even make the project even better. 

    I very much appreciate your time to help me with my problem that i had 


    Thank you @gr5 and @ahoeben

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
