Cura Help, Inner Walls Before Outer Walls?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura Help, Inner Walls Before Outer Walls?

Hello everyone, I am running into issues with under extrusion on my outer walls. This can be easily fixed if the inner walls are printed before the outer walls however the setting does not exist. The only thing that comes close to it is "Outer Before Inner Walls". I have tried deselecting that option but in both cases the outer walls are always printed before the inner walls. If you are part of the Cura Team, I would love to see the option in a new update 🙂

PS...I already tried extra prime amount however my piece create inconsistent blobs some are perfect and some are too large depending on what side they are on, so Id like to stay away from that option.

Thanks in advance 🙂

    Hi there , I am having the exact same issues , problem is its not on all pieces its all piece dependant .

    nightmare issue as makes no sense why even when retraction settings are perfect (no stringing or blobs) there is no need for extra prime amount I found it a joke it just uses more plastic and increases weight and filament use  , all options Cura provide should stop it but its so much trial and error and wasting money/filament.

    but I did try alternating these options depending on what piece you are printing and it helps or eliminates wall underextrusion.

    You will not know if works or fixed it until you print and waste a bit before it shows even with cura preview  


    play with print wall order and optimise wall print order - seems like they cancel each other out so have a test.


    hope this helps you.
