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 ! ;-)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
