Z-Drop BEFORE Print Starts

Post by cbensch »

Anyone know how to disable the drop of the heat bed before the print starts? Is it a Slic3r setting or Repetier Host setting? I can't find it. My first layer goes down hot and the 5 seconds or so that the extruder is in the air makes the filament drip out. Even my primer skirt pops a bit at first due to air bubbles. I'd like to avoid having to add another two or three skirts if I can as it's an absolute waste of filament. Thank you in advance.
