Draw line instead of skirt


Recommended Posts

Posted · Draw line instead of skirt

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.
