Support Print Sequence Help

Posted · Support Print Sequence Help

I'm printing a full plate of duplicate items on my printer, and I've noticed that the default for Cura is to print all the supports on a layer before printing the main body.


This seems to be adding a lot of unnecessary travel time. 


Is there an option I haven't seen that could make cura print the support, then body, for each individual piece?


So to be clear, currently it goes:


Item 1 -> 50: Print supports, then Item 1 -> 50 Print Body


I would like it to go


Item 1 Print supports, print body, Item 2 Print supports, print body, etc.....


Only thing close I've seen is print sequence, but that prints the entire object one at a time, and there's not room on my plate for that kind of motion.
