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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
