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

    • "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.
