Cura 3.4 where is" Print outside perimeter before holes"

Posted · Cura 3.4 where is" Print outside perimeter before holes"

Hi All,

I asked this in the general 3.4 topic but I think it is more sensible and easier to view/search if I setup a separate topic.

 

As the title says, where do I find the new feature called " Print outside perimeter before holes " in 3.4?

    I just joined forum to ask this same question.  I'm fairly new at 3D printing, but I know how to use Google. I can't find an answer anywhere as of yet.

    Are we the only people who want to use this new feature that is one of the key features of 3.4.....?

     

    Come on folk, what are we doing wrong......where is this feature hidden?

    OR.....is this something we need to install an add-on....?

     

    H E L P..... (please!)

    ?

    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:

    41 minutes ago, Brulti said:

    printing outer before inner walls

     

    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.

    That's how I interpret it as well. Glad to have been of help.

    One of the Moderators said the same thing on another thread. I was just getting back here to pass it along, going to give it a try. With the help on here I have an answer I have spent days trying to find. thank you all.
