Brim only on the outside of object?

Recommended Posts

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)

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 :)
