External Perimeters First setting

Hi,

Is there a setting in Cura (I currently have 15.04.4) that will set the slicer to print the outer most perimeter first for each layer? I know this setting exists in MatterSlice and Slic3r and I was wondering if Cura had a way to do that as well.

Alternatively, if you have any tips for preventing the curling up of thin parts of the first layer that catch on the print head and pull up and ruin the print I would love to hear them.

I have painters tape on the bed, level it each run, and have the temperatures set to 210C, 70C.

Thank you!

    Hi,

    in 15.04.5 (think it's the same in 15.04.4) there is "Infill prints after perimeters" in the Expert-Settings.

    On the other hand 70°C for the printbed ... for me it seems a bit high (assuming you're printing PLA <-- Hotend at 210°C?), you could try to lower the bed temperature.

    Regards Bernd
