Resize it accordingly in your slicer or create your own by customizing.

I used this to clean the bed from leftovers, just crank up the temperature for the very first layer.
So far I only tried white PLA, but with hotter material it should work even better.

I am not fully understand how it works.

The idea is to print a first layer over any leftover plastic, thus heating it a second time and melting it with the new layer.

Afterwards you pull the whole thing off, together with those leftowers. The hope is, that the leftovers stick with the new layer more than the buildbed.
It doesn't work every time though, but it should be better with a hotter material than the leftovers (like try ABS to clean up PLA, or use max/overtemp PLA).

Clever idea. Sounds especially handy for glass build plates.
