Relative to 1.1.4, does 1.2.0 remove this feature?

Manufacturing Page

  • Added Drawing Order Manager which allows customization of the drawing order of area types

I need to know how I can get infill lines to print before walls/loops, especially on the first layer?
Alternatively, please tell me how I can avoid the head moving over the inner areas of the part, and keep the head moving strictly along the outer perimeter (or even outside the perimeter)?

The problem I am really trying to solve is that I have some oozing with flexible filament and I don't want the "hairs" dragging across the build-plate through the middle of my part, which is happening because outer walls and other features are being printed first.
I figured a quick fix would be to print the infill first and the walls afterward.
That way any oozing will land on top of the first layer infill and will not mar the bottom layer.

BTW, it's interesting that the area inside the walls on the first layer is controlled as "Infill."
To me that is a bottom layer and part of the shell.  Very confusing to those of us coming from other slicers, but at least I finally did find that the line pattern for the inner areas of the bottom layer is Infill -> Fill Type.


Hello Leon,

The drawing order manager is a drag n' drop system. If you want the infill to be printed before the perimeter, then drag the drawing group which contains the infill in front of the other drawing group which contains the perimeter. Check the attached screenshot fragment.

To avoid "hairs" you can use a bit lower print temperature or elevation before travel, but the latter would increase print time.
