Thank you for this! I was having trouble using a build plate that doesn't heat. This really helped!

Files not working??

OK sorry, im reading the instructions now ;)

Hello, need to print with the desing in each work? Or print one disc for various designs?

Thanks

Corrected the filenames and added some useful sizes.

This is one technique among others. Brim does not always work well for example with http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:35064http://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/thing:16728http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

I find brims to work much nicer than rafts, and the cleanup post-printing is much easier
