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?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
