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.

    • "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.
