For SOME stuff I import "their" STL and add the things I need for
printing on my printer. I think "brim" is overrated. It adds material 
where the object doesn't need it and not enough where it does. 

For stuff that is high and long, and tends to pull the ends off the
bed, I now add a half cone of a few layers high to the ends. Works
great. Except when there end up being STL errors.

The plan was simple, like my brother-in-law Phil. But unlike
Phil, this plan just might work.
