In the past I have used Cura for the slicer. But since I bought my Artisan Unit, I have been using Luban and I want to use it as I can have a lot of interaction with 3D Printing, CNC, Laser etc…
There is one feature that I can not figure out that it is very useful when you 3D Print “Domes” or “Helmets”. In Cura the feature is called the “Support Blocker”
It allows to delete in the case of the Helmet the support in the middle of the Dome that is NOT needed and I can save many hours of printing and a lot of material savings.
Here is the picture of before and after with Cura:
BEFORE I can remove the middle support
APPLYING the Support Blocker allow to “block” the middle support since it is not needed when building a dome or helmet. Here is the outcome when applying it.
RESULTS And here are the results:
NOW, let us go the Luban Software.
It seems that this feature is incorporated (see the next picture)
In the picture you can see the feature called “Support” where you can edit it… see the next 2 pictures
You have the option to EDIT ALL, then you can +Add or - Delete support
Here is the results after I deleted the support in the middle. The same as Cura.
Now Slicing OR Generating the G-Code
BUT when I slice it, the removal of the middle support, shows up again.
Apparently I am missing something really basic or there is a bug in the software ???
Any help from anyone it will be great.
I love my Artisan Printer… Best Printer ever !!!
