Feature request: Interrupted Brim / Super-Skirt


Recommended Posts

Posted · Feature request: Interrupted Brim / Super-Skirt

I use Cura as my primary slicer. (I have Slic3r as well, but haven't used it much.)


A feature I'm looking for is a brim that stops a fraction of a millimetre before the first layer of the model — basically, a super-skirt. I want something that will provide bed adhesion for supports, but won't interfere with edge detail on the first layers of the model itself.


Is such a thing possible? Is there an option I've missed, or maybe a plug-in that does this?
