first layer excess print

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.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
