Currently a print starts by printing a line along the back of the build plate and wrapping wrounf the right hand side. Then a second line is printed along the front edge. These lines reduce the build area unnecessarily. For example, there is no 256mm axis available (except diagonal).
Request: please print these lines along the front edge of the build plate (where the cutter mechanism already reduces the available area). This will provide a 256mm long X axis.
(The front area is already used by the flow calibration, but I believe there’s enough space there to fit everything.)
The purgeline has no effect on buildvolume. You can print over it. It is not an block-area.
It has an effect on build volume in that it prevents me from getting a clean print where the purge lines are. Especially for thin parts or if there is a bridge or overhang in that area it is not something one can just ignore.
Just change your Start-GCode. Is a little work but anyone can do that. Changed mine. Moved it from the front to the plate to the right side
Great! Sounds like a feature request that is trivial for BBL to implement, then.
Why should BL Do that for you?
It is simple Gcode-scripting. Everyone in the 3D-Print-Community can do that by them self.
BBL should do this right so “everyone” doesn’t have to diff the start-up gcode at every release to find out what changed and merge their changes in.
Agreed. Double purge is just dumb.
Purgeline is normal. Any Slicer adds one except you modify the Start-GCode. Its an individuel thing. So advance to Level 2 in 3D-Knowledge.
Second Thing is, the X1C uses the “Purgeline” for calibration.
