Fuzzy skin blocking in critical areas


Recommended Posts

Posted · Fuzzy skin blocking in critical areas

Hi All,

  Have been trying to use the "Fuzzy Skin" option on the model "[Mario Kart Joy Con Wheel Nintendo Switch](https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2551596)" on Thingiverse for the kids...


  However the two push buttons get the fuzzy treatment, and no longer work.


  I tried to put in a support blocker and activate per model settings to disable the fuzzy, which works, however it adds walls within the print.
  Also tried in the latest beta, and I get the same result.


  As you can see in the images attached, the fuzzy skins has been disabled for one button, however it add walls within the infill area..

  Is probably not an issue, however I want to be able to disable the fuzzy skin around the "Nintendo" logo as well, but dont want to add walls as it would change the look.


  I am not sure if this is a bug, or if I am going about it the wrong way...

  How can you create a "virtual" object, that does not print or effect the model in any way, except to disable selective options like Fuzzy skin.


  Any suggestions would be most appreciated.


  The fuzzy skin option looks awesome and the print came out beautiful, if only the buttons would work it would be 100%.


  Many thanks in advance.

I've recently encountered this issue, trying to modify infill to 100% for a select area.  Our problem is the same though. 


When you place the blocker, the overlap settings shows seven parameters highlighted orange with values of 0.  Leave them there, don't be tempted to remove them like I did.  These parameters set the size and thickness of the walls and roof/base of the virtual cube you are adding.  With these original parameters it will not draw this solid box.


You can see the thread here if you wish to see where my problem and solution lies.  https://community.ultimaker.com/topic/38846-adjusting-default-settings-in-per-model-menu-bar/


I hope that helps, and in return, could you explain how you got the fuzzy-blocker to work?  I can't get it to work here.  I have fuzzy enabled as a global option, but when I added a blocker to a part, added the five fuzzy parameters to the blocker and had them turned off and set to 0, it still wouldn't work for me to get the part to print normally as a smooth-walled object.

      • 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
