Posted · first layer excess print



As you can see below, I always get a start around my model which I don't design. Can somebody help me with the setting to turn this off please?

I can't find it myself in the settings.

    That's called a "Brim" and helps the model stay stuck to the platform which can help prevent warping. If you want to disable it, the setting you're looking for is "Build Plate Adhesion Type". I recommend "Skirt" rather than "None" to make sure the nozzle is properly primed.

    Also, since only the front part of your model got the skirt it indicates that the rest of the model (the "BUX" part) is floating above the platform. You might want to look into fixing that before printing as it will very likely lead to a failed print since it will have very poor, if any, adhesion to the bed.
