Draw line instead of skirt

Recommended Posts

Ultimaker printers don't do that; at least not if their gcode is sliced by Cura.

But you could try to place a rectangular object with the height of your first layer, the width of your nozzle and the desired length onto the print bed. Maybe you have to fiddle around a bit to get it printed first. And you have to switch off skirt.

It is to prime the nozzle, but unlike a skirt or brim it does not add to the x y dimensions of your print. So if you're printing an object that just barely fits on your bed, you can still prime the nozzle - in most cases.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
