Awesome Cylinder Support Blocker!


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Awesome Cylinder Support Blocker!

The Cylinder Support Blocker has saved my project as I used it to block Fuzzy skin on my slightly conical half pipe. Not only is it a cylinder but it somehow automatically conformed to my half pipes taper.

The problem I have is that I don't know if it conformed to my model or if I did something to taper it. ? I kept trying to replicate it but can't figure it out. 

Another thing is that I get two skins when I use the blocker. There are skins between the wall of the model and the wall of the blocker (if that make any sense). I will attach a screen shot. I tried making zero walls on the blocker but that didn't work.


Love the Cylinder Blocker!

        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.
