This is one technique among others. Brim does not always work well for example with http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... . Also, when the object is tick, brims are not strong enough (tick enough) to fight warpage.
You know Slic3r has a feature called 'brim' that works wonders to combat warping. If you don't use slic3r, this openscad file generates one on STL files - http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
I find brims to work much nicer than rafts, and the cleanup post-printing is much easier

The best way to use the anti-warping disk with Slic3r is:
1. Add the anti-warping disks you need on the platter.
2. Add the object you want to print on the platter.
3. Align properly the object you want to print with the anti-warping disks.
4. Save the platter as an STL file. Too much plastic will be extruded if you save the platter as a GCode file right away.
5. Empty the platter.
6. Load the saved STL file.
7. Save the object as a GCode file.
8. Print the GCode file.
