Allow brim thickness to be different than Initial Layer?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Allow brim thickness to be different than Initial Layer?

I use 0.8mm nozzles frequently and often use a 0.3mm or 0.4mm layer height.  On some materials, a brim this thick can be difficult to remove cleanly without a lot of effort.  I would be interested in being able to set the brim thickness independently from the initial layer thickness.  Similarly, at times on parts/materials that are warping, it might be helpful to increase the brim thickness.

As far as I know there is no way to have different layer heights for the brim and model.

But there is a setting "Brim distance" which could help to remove the brim. I am not sure if "Brim distance" is included in the official Cura or only in @burtoogle 's version.
