Request: Prime tower/ "helpers" print order

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I've been printing with PLA/PVA for some time now, and the order at which Cura decides to print the "helpers" is somewhat affecting my print quality. What happens is that the first layer of my supports goes down, but due to not being primed yet is somewhat spotty and does not always stick. After a second it continues to print correctly, but the strands from the initial period can be dragged into the print area by this point. After that the prime tower prints splendidly. If anything, I would prefer the prime tower's brim to be stringy and reduce the bottom surface quality than the actual print. There does not seem to be a setting for this at the moment. Any chance this will be implemented?
