Support Blocker

I have tried some random clicking to get supports to function they way I need them but I am having no luck. Is there an FAQ about the support blocker feature? The first 10 Google hits all say that its been talked to death and to search. I have searched here with no luck. There must be an FAQ? Thank you!

Support blockers are used to mark parts of an object that would normally need supports as not needing support. If you place a support blocker in mid-air, it will not do anything even if it intersects a support structure; support blockers are not "subtracted from" supports. A support blocker needs to intersect with part of the model.

Okay, I finally played with it. I was trying to use it to remove un-needed supports in the preview view after slicing. They are added before slicing. You select the model and then select the support blocking and click on the edge you think will print without support. I was needing that basic of instruction. lol.

 

Thank you!
