prime tower questions

I am making a tall print using pla and breakaway white. The prime tower keeps falling over, even though I made the diameter wider from 20mm to 50mm. What do other people do to combat this problem? I am currently pausing the print and attempting to support the prime tower by using painters tape.

    Hi,

     

    the prime tower is not necessarily needed, but definitely improves the quality of dual nozzle prints.

    making the tower wider might help, but the better way would be to activate the dedicaded prime tower brim (independend from "global" brim setting, especially designed to prevent prime tower fails).

     

    Regards

    The prime tower still fell. My print messed up close to the end. Is it possible in cura to start the print at a specific height with all the same settings, except for deactivating the prime tower? I carefully figured out my z height.
