Corner-only adhesion helpers?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Corner-only adhesion helpers?

I've been firing off a fair number of square prints that are annoying to cut/break free of full brims, but could use the adhesion help. In an effort to make it easier, I've turned off brims and manually placed small 1-layer-thick, 10mm circles at each corner of the print. The results are even more effective than a traditional brim, and a lot easier to remove.

 

Is there any way this could be implemented as a custom adhesion helper type? For these kinds of prints, it's a HUGE improvement…

Sorry, I can't help with your request for "mouse ears" but have you tried using a wide skirt that extends to within 0.25mm (or thereabouts) from the print. It gives you the benefit of keeping the corners of the part warm without actually requiring to be cleaned off the object when the print is done. Here's an example of what I mean:
