Skirt
« on: September 07, 2017, 03:35:20 AM »
Is there any chance to add skirt? On raftless printing the skirt help a lot to extrude the filament for hold on the bed. It would be great to can add a skirt by the RaftAway.

I think you mean "brim", not skirt - a skirt is not attached to the model, so it doesn't affect model adhesion. It just primes the extruder and lets you check your initial Z height.

I've never used either, actually. Skirt does not seem of much use to me. I guess a brim can save time vs a raft, but if I have doubts about adhesion I just go with raft.
