Autocreated skirts goes outide print platform


As you can see, the skirt extends outside the build area. This is probably ‘not good’.

File is ‘goat woman’ base from MMF, and printer is Anycubic Photon.

Would it be possible to add a ‘force rubber band’ option that will add a sortest path outside of the supports type skirt?



By shorted path you mean a graph like base plate that connects all supports?

We can also limit the contour based on the build plate.
For slicing it doesn’t really matter if it’s over the edge.



Here’s a ‘shorted path’:


Green is support feet, blue is the outline.
There’s no need for the outline to follow the outline of the part being printed after all.


A that’s what you mean.
What you draw is a ‘convex hull’.
It will won’t work in all cases; imagine a letter L from the top. It will become a huge triangle.

I was thinking more along these lines:
