Overview and Background
3d Printed Hat Block
This project is a reproduction of an original 1940's hat block scanned and edited for optimal printing.
This particular file has high infil and is very sturdy. However the infil can be reduced while maintaining the integrity of the block.
The product is extremely sturdy and can be used with both straw and felt blocking techniques. However, when blocking with felt please keep in mind the tendency of plastic to melt and avoid hitting the uncovered block directly with steam or touching it directly with hot tools. Steaming the hat while on the block seems to be alright. In addition, the block itself is not pinnable however, if attached to a wooden base (instructions given) it functions perfectly.
