Idea for new feature: spiral skirt


Recommended Posts

Posted · Idea for new feature: spiral skirt

I think maybe  a useful option make a spiral skirt, because ofter when print start the nozzle is dirty and blob, and the dirty often go to bed when it touch but after the 1st round, the nozzle go close to the starting point and collect the dirt and the blobs.... i think if i can make a spiral skirt so it make 2 / 3 round (as usual) but with every round ranged of about ... for example... 5 mm it maybe a great option.

what do you think?

    I know what you mean, when printing the skirt the nozzle does often collect blobs that have been left earlier. I think the spiral skirt is possibly useful. What I do is normally space the skirt some distance from the model and also print at least 500mm of skirt so as to give me plenty of time to get in there and grab any crap that is being dragged around.
