Any Way to Change the Default Wipe Tower Shape?

Just getting my MMU2S added to my i3 MK3S and one of the first things I noticed was the shape of the Wipe Tower. I have learned over time that sharp corners are more prone to lifting off the bed and thats exactly what started happening my first two attempts using the wipe tower.

Is there a way OTHER than wipe to object to permanently change the default shape of the wipe tower? All Id really like to do is round the corners with a radius of say .2"/5mm. That would help reduce the issue of the wipe tower lifting.

And no, this is not a bed adhesion issue. I have amazing bed adhesion with PLA on the textured sheet on both my i3 MK3S units. But some temps and filament just dont do well with sharp corners.

If at first you don't succeed, redefine success!...

Huh, well that is a good idea. I use brim discs of various sizes that I created all the time. Thats a good temporary work around until they add the option to manipulate the wipe tower more.
