I've got exactly the same question. Of course the two objects have to be exported separatly to have different extruders assigned to each.
The question is how to tell (force) Cura to start with the extruder that draws the text, and not the surface surrounding it.
When my UMS5 first draws the surface, and then tries to fill inn the text, the text shows up blurry. I find no place to switch this sequence.
I am using a Ultimaker 3 with dual extrusion.
The printed object in question consists of two STL files. One file is assigned to the first extruder and the other to the second extruder.
The problem in this case is that one file is a text, which is also embedded by the other.
When I assign the text to the first extruder it will be printed first in the first layer, which is what I want.
But if I assign the text to the second extruder it will be printed second and the result is not good. The settings in Cura are exactly the same.
So the question is: Is there an option in Cura (or a hack) so that the printing will start with the second extruder?
