When the model has no baseplate or supports, it is placed directly on the platform. This might cause difficulties when detaching the printed details from the platform later.

The Channeling function comes in handy in such cases. This feature allows generating special channels that serve as a safe zone between a model and the platform. Also, it makes it easier to remove the models with no baseplates or supports from the platform.

Channeling is not applied to supports and baseplates.

How to enable the Channeling feature:

  1. Select a model. 
  2. Click the icon.
    → The Support and Base widget opens. 
  3. Check the Channeling checkbox to enable the feature.

The channels are depicted in grey once the Channeling feature is activated.

Using channels makes sense if the bottom parts of the models are not essential and do not comprise any detailed features.
