New Cura Brim Setting: Smoothing


Recommended Posts

Posted · New Cura Brim Setting: Smoothing

Hey guys,


I tried to print with PP-Filament and because I knew that I would get some adhesion problems I printed with a Brim.

The problem with the Brim is, that there are some corners on the outside... These corners made it harder for the print to stick on the built plate.

I discovered the Raft setting "Raft smoothing" and that would be a perfect setting for the Brim as well.

You could regulate the outer corners and I think it would get easier to print PP for example.


Looking forward to hear from you

    The first picture shows my model with a brim.

    As you can see are there sharp corners, which won't stick to the built plate when you're printing with PP.


    The second picture shows the same model with a raft and the Setting "Raft smoothing" activated.

    This setting rounds up the outer corners and it gets easier to print.


    For me it would be a nice feature to round the corner of the Brim like it is possible with a Raft.
