order of brim lines

Recommended Posts

I'm just printing a two-piece-model, one piece after the other, using a 15 lines brim. The first brim was printed 'normal' beginning with the outermost line working itself to the center.

The brim of the second object however was printed in a strange way. First the three or four innermost lines of the brim were printed, then the outer lines working from the inside to the outside.

I can't remember having seen this before (maybe I was just blind up to now). Can anybody else confirm this effect? I would prefer to have any brim printed from the outside to the inside due to priming the hotend.

I'm using Cura 13.12.

I havent really looked at this... I always thought my brims started on the outside.. then carried inside and upwards... have to look at a fresh brim print tonight and pay attention this time ! ;-)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
