Can someone help me understand, if possible, how to control the print order. Suppose you have a square flat fixture that has 3 holes. After using Cura with mostly default settings the printer would print 1 shell layer at hole 1 then move to hole 2 and print 1 layer then move to hole 3 and print 1 layer then print one layer of the parameter and start over at hole 1. Would it not be more efficient to all shell layers at each hole before moving on? Can this be controlled in Cura? If I can control it should I?

    Lol I have been asking myself that question for the past 4 or 5 years. The good thing is it sure motivates you at an early stage to get your bed adhesion absolutely optimised😎.  Never seen that "Optimise shell printing order" before, but I am only on 2.7

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
