3D Printing – Rafts

If printing a model that has multiple small pads or islands contacting the print bed, there is a high risk that these will catch the print head and tear off. Once this happens, the print is difficult to recover and you need to being again. No amount of glue seemed to help the latest attempt from tearing the pads from the print bed.
