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!
