Prime Tower, Ooze Shield and First Layer Setting

Prime towers and ooze shields don't stick, but the print itself does. Are we certain that they use the same first-layer settings as the model? If I print the first layer at a higher thickness, does the prime tower and ooze shield use that setting?

Yes, they do. You can check the gcode to easily verify this yourself too ;)

Thanks.

So, then, why don't they stick when the rest of the print does? Watching the beginning it seems to have insufficient flow, when the rest of the print is fine.

I see this is VERY old, but I am having the exact same symptom. Was anything ever found around this?
