Hello to all:
Could someone provide me with a start script/code that will do this:
I am getting back into 3d printing after several years away. I am helping someone set-up and use a nice FDM printer and Simplify3d, but the starting method is just garbage.
almost 10 years ago I was using a Makerbot Replicator, and the post I listed above is EXACTLY what I want. Spit out a small blob of plastic and then move (while extruding) to the start of the part, skirt, raft, whatever.
**begin rant** I remember it worked GREAT, and this "new way" of 'gradually' spitting out plastic right at the start of the skirt is just plain awful, because YES, THE SKIRT WILL RIP ITSELF UP WITHOUT PRIMING -FIRST-! The skirt should NOT BE USED FOR PRIMING right at the very beginning!! ARRRRRGH! **end rant**
Yeeesh, that was posted over four years ago and they haven't figured out how to just ADD IT AS A FEATURE. Thanks in advance for any replies!
