An object lesson

I decided to see if I could get rid of corner curling by laying down a single layer of HDPE and then printing the 20 layer perimeter on top of that.

That appears to work. The object lesson is to never leave a hot extruder barrel parked next to something you've just printed. You see the result here.

I carefully sliced the whole platform off of the foamboard to see if the print was indeed almost perfectly flat on the bottom. While the HDPE raft on which it sits curled up on its edges the printed object did not.
