Multiple objects with brim

Recommended Posts

I have a question about the multiple objects feature. I wanted to print multiple objects all at once with a brim. When I started the print I saw that it was first printing the brim of all objects and then later it would print the bottom layer of the objects. I was not expecting this. At the time I had issues with leveling the build plate so every object needed a small interaction. This caused the print to fail. If it was printing the brim and the first layer in 1 go per object I might have succeeded.

Is this a setting in Cura to first print all brims and then the bottom layer?

In the meantime I have been able to fix the leveling of my build plate. It was actually not the build plate but the printerhead that was sagging in the middle due to too lose sliderblocks.

No it always does brim first in case it takes time to get the flow going.

Then like all other layers it does inner shell(s) if any.

Then shell, then infill. It's weird to watch when there is brim because it leaves a gap between inner shell and brim and then fills that last.

    • 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.
