hello everybody!

 

I dont know if I'm too new to this new version, but I didnt find the "support line distance" property at the support blocker menu.

 

I only wanted to create a strong support in one section of the print.

 

how to do it?

    >use the support blocker ( 6th icon on the left side missing a tool tip ) to generate a generic cube model OR add a model of your own for custom shapes 

    > select the model you just placed

    > select Per Model Settings ( 5th icon down on left side also missing tool tip )

    > change the mesh type to "Modify Settings For Overlaps"

    > hit the "select settings" button and add the "infill density" option

    > set the infill density as required ( in my case I needed 100% infill for a section of my model ) 

    > move the model/mesh to where you need it. 

     

    The end result is a model with different infill densities as specified by the overlapping of the modified "support blocker" model/mesh.

    All supports in a print, be they automatic or "print as support" manual, share the same settings.
