Is there option in Cura for continuous first layer?

Posted · Is there option in Cura for continuous first layer?

Everything is fine with PLA, but with ABS/HIPS I have issues with first layer: distance from nozzle to bed already less than A4 paper thickness, HIPS sticks to Anycubic Ultrabase just fine, I have problems to remove it after cooling, but unfortunately both materials not very bed-friendly. HIPS sticks just fine with continuous lines, but for some reason Cura trying to make some small lines inside of circles and making future holes by making one line, abandoning it and returning later. On screenshot Cura first layer making order. As you can see it started hole with small lines in the middle and continued later. HIPS sticks to bed after several millimeters of curving. And as result my first layer in HIPS looks terrible and print was cancelled due to that.

Is there option to make first layer in one run? I've tried to reduce "First layer speed" from 50 to 20 but result was not much better.
