Posted · Yet another feature request: re-enable "Skirt"

Hello Daid / UM-Team,

yesterday i finally upgraded to the latest Cura (so far i had used 12.12).

I like it a lot especially the slicing speed is absolutely wow! Nice work!

one thing, though: would it be possible to offer the skirt option from the older versions?

I was printing some cog wheels (which came out beautifully by the way), but cleaning the brim is one heck of work.

Switching off the brim doesn't seem to be a valid option, since i seem to need the "priming" of the nozzle.

Would that be possible, maybe as an option in the "platform adhesion" setting?

    Skirt is activated by default if you choose "none" for platform adhesion type. Check the layers view and you'll see it ;)

    Also, there is an intelligent feature for defining the Skirt properties in the Expert Settings: Set the amount of lines to 1 AND the minimal length to about 300mm (my choice - choose whatever you find suitable). This automatically makes multiple skirt lines for smaller models and only one line for large models.
