You can also try manually extruding 100mm or so of plastic before the print using the machine control panel to make sure it's ready to do before you start the print
Thanks for the thoughts.
I thought the same thing as well. However, I have done two things to rule out a improperly primed print head:
1. Added a ludicrous amount of lines to the brim (im talking 20 at one point). The same result happens.
2. I added a 10 mm extrude and wipe to the gcode at the beginning of all prints.
Also, if it were improperly primed the part wouldn't immediately start printing correctly, it would have *some* length of whisp in its first layer, and it simply does not. It is ONLY the brim/skirt that is giving me the problem. It is strange and perplexing.
