Re: Skirt won't print if global z offset is negative and larger than layer height

hey so i recently i ran into the ability to print 2 layers of a brim/skirt (and presumably as many as i want). so if you set your brim layers to 2 or 3 does it print even with the negative z offset?

Re: how to prevent support on just one of the parts in a process

Re: Paid upgrade For 2019 upcoming Version 5.0
