I’ve done this before with my previous printers.  Seems to work well with the TAZ 6 as well.  Will always get some extraneous extrusion, no matter what you do.  Minimizing it is worthwhile.

Ditched my skirt for this Prusa i3 Mk2 style wipe feature I made for the TAZ 6 – forum.lulzbot.com

Not sure if anyone else runs into this but when I print skirts there is a decent chance they get pulled into the print. After I saw how the Prusa i3 Mk2 primed its nozzle by printing a line at the front of the bed where the printer never usually prints I got jealous.
