Brim painting

It would be great if brim could be 'painted, like for support or seams, I had a recent print where there was just a tiny part that would have needed brim to hold on the plate, it was just after 3hours print that it fell off, ruining the print. I hope it's not a duplicate, I didn't find any similar request in the forum

Cheers, keep on the great work on Prusaslicer 🙂

RE: Brim painting

I see you already opened an issue, I was going to mention that before opening new ones you need to search to see if one already exists.  In this case it does https://github.com/prusa3d/PrusaSlicer/issues/8283   .  With over 2000 open issues and many more closed ones it is quite likely to already have been requested.

RE: Brim painting

Not saying it's not a good idea but maybe just placing a part that area and making it one layer high might do (like Mickey Mouse ears on the corners of large objects to avoid warping).

RE:

You can already put a brim anywhere you want, in any shape you want, on any object you want. This is not a belittlement of you or anyone else. you just need to educate yourself on the use of modifiers. This is still possible in 2.5 alpha as well.

 

Good Luck

Yep thanks for that advice, I think I have to revise my search techniques, didn't find it, should probably have insisted a bit there 🙄

The modifiers are indeed a good alternative, I think the Brim painting is still an interesting feature for future releases,and I probably wasn't thinking of this is because the parts were very small and I was too much focused on other possible failures; well, we'll see what future brings 🙂

Is there a way to specify that the added modifiers are to be classified as a brim though? While I haven't done it, my understanding is that the "brim separation" value can be tuned such that a brim provides good support to a part, but can be easily peeled off without leaving excess material and without a deburring tool. Do brims tuned in this way assist with holding down sharp corners?
