Building things with popsicle sticks...
This print reminds me of the sorts of things we build out of popsicle sticks (the wooden stick in an ice lolly) at Bible school in the summers when I was very small. The upper left hand corner of the square was trimmed off a little when I used side cutters to remove a blob of plastic that the extruder, which I just raised after the printing, dripped on it.
Printing a raft of HDPE before you print the object pretty much gets us away from peeling and warping problems, it would appear.
