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 optimisedūüėé.¬† Never seen that "Optimise shell printing order" before, but I am only on 2.7

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
