Brim only on the outside of object?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Brim only on the outside of object?

Hi,

I love the brim as Platform Adhesion help. However, it's hard to really clean the inside of an object with a small knife.

So is there a way to do the Brim only on the outside of an object? That would really be cool!

Thanks, Netsrac

I would also love this feature.

Trick you could do, is disable the brim. Set the skirt lines to 30. And set the skirt distance to 0.01

This will generate an outside only brim (as you trick the skirt code, which is only on the outside, to acts as a brim)

Cool...thanks for this tip. However, it would be great to have this as an extended setting in any future versions of Cura.

Can somebody start on a "tips and tricks" wiki already? :)

Cool thanks Daid!

If there isn't a "Tips&Tricks" section on the forum yet, that'd be a great idea, you know those every day things that you might think off and save someone else a shitload of time... would be cool.

I actually do my brims/skirts straight in CAD before exporting. That way I can get exactly the type I want.

Cool Deep, but isn't it then harder to disconnect the support from the object or do you make sure that the connecting points are thiner then the actual pillars (support)?

Yes... that is why I'm only talking about brims and skirts.. not actual support material for overhangs. That's a completely different story of course.

Especially when I print something tall and kinda thin I usually include nice wide base to the export as I have had cases where the printer head has knocked over the prints... typically in the later layers.

I can confirm that these settings work, although 20 skirt lines might be more than enough :)
