    It assures no issues other than printer randomness.
    I find it too restrictive.

    The vertical line running from top to bottom. Normally it would cause a blob along this line which has to be removed for it to fit. The blob shield prevents this from happening but it will not eliminate the line. Rotating this side away from the extruder eliminates the line as well. Try it and you will see what I mean. The print will be much cleaner.

    I know exactly what you mean, good thinking, been lucky with some of my previous prints as the blob line was on a corner.

    I know Simplify3D has a blob placement tool...if Cubify wouldnt be so crappy for everything else....ugh!

    But once the head is placed in the extruder, whats the deal? why would it have to affect printing?

    It won't affect printing as long as it fits well. I was just pointing out that it would look much cleaner. If it were sticking out too much, you would have to cut it or sand it to make it fit. Apparently this is not the case for you. It can vary with different brands of filament.

    Well I can say it prints fine on both extruders so far, with 3DS filament (ABS).

    New trick: gapping a dirty plate.

    I have a build plate with glue slurried all over it.
    It has a single layer 6" square surround printed with PLA on LokBuild.
    When I wet the glue, it remains within these confines.
    Makes for a nice quick certain-to-stick print bed (this LokBuild seems to be dead from day 1).

    But gapping the nozzle is a PITA...
    ....had to auto-gap with a different build plate and switch back to the original build plate to do the manual gapping.

    Kind of a D'uh! moment when I put a 17cm wide slip of printer paper on the build plate; just lying there.
    Now it goes through the routine and lets you set the gap manually when the auto-gap fails.

    Nice!

    Now if only that would work for the leveling.
