Blocking Brim supports?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Blocking Brim supports?

I am pretty adept at Cura but I am struggling to work out if there is a way of blocking the Brim mesh. I generally create my own supports and blockers in Fusion360 then import them into Cura and use permodel tools to create my meshes. In the case of my picture here I want to create some 40mm feet that have a matrix of small feet with 2x2mm channels between them. I don't want a raft because of the amount of time and material but I do need a Brim for adhesion. I have tried tabs and converted them to Permodel>Normal model but I don't like them. So the problem I have is that when I add a Brim (as you can see in my picture) it fills all the channels in with Brim as well which makes it a faff to get out. So I made a blocker mesh with a 40x3mm disk and set it in so that it is level with the bed but it deosn't block the Brim thus leaving the small feet and channels clear.  I have the Brim set to the outside only but it still infills the channels.  It appears a Brim doesn't have the same atttributes as a support. Any ideas how I might overcome this problem?
