How to print a brim that skirts the part and not he supports

I have a part with a small footprint but very tall for it's width. All the way around this is supports. It is hollow on the underside/inside except supports. I don't want to use a raft as it was a bit difficult to remove. How do I print a brim that goes around the pieces edge not just around all the...

Re: Is there a way to reverse the direction of print?

I am beginning to believe it to be a slicer error rather than a dialed in error. The under extrusion happens at the same height position every time I try to print this part. Everywhere else is perfect except these two same layers each time it messes up. All the layers below are the same and print pe...

Re: Is there a way to reverse the direction of print?

No, not inside out but the actual travel direction. If I were to print a circle the printer always prints it with the nozzle traveling in a counter clockwise direction. Is there a way to tell the slicer to print in a clockwise direction??

Is there a way to reverse the direction of print?

I have a part that under extrudes at one section all the time. I don't see any difference in the layers but it is happening. I could deal with this if it were not for the fact that this is a wing for an airplane and where it is under extruding is when it starts a new layer. the direction of travel i...

Yup just added as the last line in the start script G1 X20 Y20 Z10 F9000. Ran it and it worked great.

Re: Nozzle hitting clips on start of print

Ok, I guess my bad. I'll blame it in the meds. I see what you have been saying all along. Just add a line to my start script G1 X20 Y20 Z10 F9000. In my mind Simplify3d wAs giving a home command after my start script. Even after I saw it in my editor just giving it a z position. Just didn't sink in ...

Re: Nozzle hitting clips on start of print

I know how to edit the code. What I am looking for is the ability to not have to go in and edit the code to stop z from moving then x and y the problem is ....if you actually read the gcode that z movement is on a line of it's own first then x and y on the next line meaning that before all things z ...

Re: Nozzle hitting clips on start of print

Again, my start script runs perfect in S3D. It is what happens after the script runs that I am trying to fix

Re: Nozzle hitting clips on start of print

Both use the same start script! The problem comes from the next positioning codes. In the Cura file X Y And Z move to the first point together. This means that it moves from the elevated position of my start script down while also moving over. With Simplify3d my start script is run and runs perfect....
