100 - Toybox 3D perimeter line / extra plastic on tip

IMG_0903.JPG

According to their customer service, the Toybox 3D printer folks have told me why the printer draws a perimeter around the model before it starts. If you print out multiple items in a row, the heated nozzle, much like a hot glue gun, will continue to "leak" plastic until the tip cools down.

The perimeter is to wipe off the excess plastic before it starts printing again.
