Cura 3.6 Support With Brim Odd Behavior

Recommended Posts

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,

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.

    • "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.
