Cura 3.4 where is" Print outside perimeter before holes"

Recommended Posts

I've looked at the blog and release notes and, unless I'm mistaken, this is not a setting that you can turn on or off, but the new behavior by default for CURA.


Print outside perimeter before holes. Prioritizes outside perimeters before printing holes. By printing holes as late as possible, there is a reduced risk of travel moves dislodging hole edges from the build plate. This setting should only have an effect if printing outer before inner walls. Contributed by smartavionics.

@Brulti, many thanks - I agree with you now that I have seen the release notes and read them as carefully as you did.


I interpret that it is a no-option setting if:

So in summary, if you choose the setting ' outer before inner walls', you get the outside perimeter printed before the hole. If however you choose the standard (?) inner walls then outer walls, this feature doesn't apply.


Much clearer, hopefully this thread will help others too.


Thanks again for your aid.

    • "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.
