Re: Bug? Skirt seems to consider more than the object's base

I believe thats the way the shirt should be. That wont effect the size of your object. The skirt is the outer border of your project no matter what the base shape and size is.

Re: Feature Request: Heat management for small objects

there are a couple things you can do here. there is a setting in creator where if layer takes less than "x" amt of seconds to complete it slows the print speed down "x"%. also you can make a fan setpoint so your fan kicks on say at layer "30". you can figure out the layer when you do the preview by ...

Re: unable to level part on print bed
