Cura 3.6 Support With Brim Odd Behavior

Hello to whoever may be reading this,

 

I recently updated to Cura 3.6 as I wanted to try out the new brim on supports to assist my tree supports with bed adhesion, however, as it currently stands, this setting is unusable for me. I am able to select generate brim on supports, however, the printer will attempt to print the supports before printing a skirt. Here is a gif demonstrating what I mean. Without printing a skirt I can never get anything to properly adhere to the bed. I was wondering if there were any plans to alter this behavior of changing the order of which things are printed, or if there is anything that I can do in order to correct this myself.

 

Best Regards,

Alithnul

I came here looking for a solution to this too.  My print has a few small overhangs, but otherwise it doesn't need a brim so I've been going for a skirt to save some post print processing.  I've found though that it starts printing some of the supports before it prints the skirt, meaning I don't get good adhesion for the support, even if I prime the extruder prior to the print starting with some custom code.  I was trying to mess with the "Layer Start X" and "Layer Start Y" settings to fix this but to no avail... hopefully they fix this up on the next update, unless someone can figure out another solution.

    I'm using cura 4.0 and this problem persists. I'm was printing a part with tiny supports and needed to add a support brim. I also print a skirt to prime the extruder. Cura prints first the support brim and with the extruder not primed the initial brim lines will not print.

     

    The solution, and expected behavior, wold be to print the skirt first.

     

    Best regards,
