Modifying first layer perimeters

Recommended Posts

Posted · Modifying first layer perimeters

Whilst printing 3d planes in single wall with Cura, I have been unable to complete the first layer as the designer has asked.


To enable ease of gluing parts together that have very thin single walls, the designer has made the first layer with three perimeters


I have been using Prusa up until now, and it is possible to modify the first layer or selected number of layers with extra perimeters, and then have the single perimeter for the remainder of the print.


Can I do this with Cura?
