Multiple objects with brim

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.

    Thanks,

    So it is defined behavior and not a bug. And as you say it is weird when you watch it, that is exactly what happened to me...
