Cura (2.1.2) : How to turn Brim off?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm having trouble with Cura and turning off Brim, even if I close the drop-down menu it still draws the Brim in the print. I also tried changing the diameter to 0mm but then it has this bizarre retraction filled first layer, very strange.

The new update sure looks pretty but the old one was more efficient, no doubt.

The correct way to do it is to set Brim Width to 0mm which is what you did (that's what the old cura does when you choose "None" edit: See below, my bad.).

If you post a picture of the first layer (layer view) it will be easier to figure out what's going on.

That's not true. Cura did a skirt when you selected None. This is why we changed the values displayed (eg; Now it actually matches with what is going on).

Setting the brim width to 0mm is the way to go. It is however not recommended to do so (your printer needs a bit of flow to get going, your first layer will be better if you do this).

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
