Printing perimeters/walls sequentially

Posted (edited) · Printing perimeters/walls sequentially

Hello! I've been using Simplify3D for over a year now, but I built a new printer recently and I just can't get it to work well. I decided to try out Cura again and am very pleased with all of the nice additions (the layer preview update from 2.5 is HUGE.) Now I'm just trying to get everything tuned, but so far Cura has done a much better job than Simplify3D for the new printer. However, I'm having one major issue.

In S3D, if you set perimeters to 2, it will print both of those perimeters sequentially. In Cura, it will print all of the outside perimeters and then all of the inside perimeters. This results in additional retractions and travel moves, and ends up leaving a lot of visible marks on the print. Is there just a setting I'm missing or any way of getting the desired behavior?

Here are some comparison images to help give you a better idea:

    Excellent! I'll try slowing down the first layer more to mitigate the problem, but I'm really looking forward to it. Thanks a lot!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
