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.

    Yes, this is a known issue. The problem also happens with delta-bots which start in the center of the bed instead of the corner. Still need to fix it.
