In 2016 I did some experiments with using reusable supports to hold up the roof of some 3D prints. In this video I expand upon that by using building blocks to create a reusable support. This is a great method to save time and materials on a 3d print. If you have small batch of prints, this can be used as well to speed up production times.

I covered the building blocks in blue tape to prevent them from sticking to the blocks.
