Makerbot Replicator Custom Slicing Profile
by emhughes, published
This method takes longer and uses more plastic for rafts but works consistently.
I have an updated version that works better: thingiverse.com/thing:102619

Let me know how you make out, I don't even need to 'trap' heat with acrylic panels nowadays since I put kapton tape under the fans. Only time I have issues is when my bed isn't level. Aside from that, I only need rafts when I want supports.
One thing I suggest you research is called brims, in Slic3r we use brims instead of rafts (think of a top-hat brim), it leaves a smooth bottom with a wide brim 1-layer thick - uses less plastic than rafting (and faster).
