Print skin before printing outline in first layer


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print skin before printing outline in first layer

Hey Everyone, 

I am printing with the ender 3 and i am really happy with it.Most of my prints are pretty large enclosures for electronics. This means that there is a large bottom skin. 

 

Currently the printer is first printing all the outlines and then filling them up. This tends to mess up the outlines. There is also not a nice consistency in the direction of the lines which doesn't look nice. Is there a setting where on the first layer you first print the skin, and then outline it? I tried infill before walls but that doesn't apply to the first layer.
