Hello im curious if this feature could be implemented into Ultimaker Cura, this could boost print quality and reduce printing time,


can cura have an experimental feature that can :

> print 2 or 3 layers of only shell (100 microns each)

> post which it prints one layer of infill/suport with 200 or 300 micron thickness repectively

    Let me see if I have this correct.

    You want to print 3 layers of the shell at .1mm layer height and then 1 layer of infill at .3mm layer height?

    Like this?...

    Quality / Layer Height = 0.1

    Infill / Infill Layer Thickness = 0.3.


    It would probably be a bad idea to add "Print Infill Before Walls".
