Suggestion for Draft Shield (random seam)


Recommended Posts

Posted · Suggestion for Draft Shield (random seam)

Sometimes when using a draft shield I'll get an under extrusion at the start of a layer.  This will then propagate as the next layer doesn't have something to start on, and it will just get worse and worse as it goes up.


I'd like to see the option to have a random seam on the shield.  Or, even better, just default it to a random seam.  This would prevent the propagation.  Any imperfections would have minimal impact as the next layer would not start on them.
