Feature request: Lead in on a print


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Feature request: Lead in on a print

Hi guys - been using cura for years with my Ender 3 - its been fantastic.

Depeding on a number of factors (quality of filament/humidity/randomness) after my initial purge line prior to starting a print, there is sometimes some seepage out of the nozzle or a bit of stringing that goes on, often leading to a string of filament or a blob being dragged across to the start of the print - which is OK when running a brim or a skirt for the most part - but sometimes it gets under the start of a print and causes some irregularities - would be nice to have like a 5mm lead into the start of the print to purge and stick any junk away from the actual print.

Thanks again for a great slicer.
