Cura- concentric first and last layer only?

I like the concentric infill on top/bottom layers from an aesthetic point-of-view, but don't like them from a strength point-of view.

Would it be possible to choose a regular infill for top/bottom layers, but select concentric for only the very first and last layer?

    Not sure what you are asking. Here is a screen shot where you can choose the top and bottom layers (concentric and lines, etc) but the infill is different.

    I think he's wanting just the first and last layer to be Concentric, not all the top/bottom layers:

    1: Concentric

    2: Lines

    3: Lines

    4: Infill

    5: Infill

    6: Lines

    7: Lines

    8: Concentric

    Because concentric looks like but provides less strength than Lines.

    Well, as you can see in the pic I posted, you can at least choose the bottom layer only for that (Bottom Pattern Initial Layer). Just not the top.

    Would be a nice thing to do though as I do prefer the way the concentric patterns look opposed to the other choices as well.
