Different fill angles for different objects but same slice

I modified a 3" x 3" first layer to a 12 mm x 3 mm test patch with 0 deg infill angle that I'd like to add as an object to some of my print files, the idea being I'd like to do a live Z adjust just before (but on the same print) printing the real project.  Two questions:

1.  How do I get the test patch to print first?

2.  How do I designate the infill as 0 deg for the test patch but 45 deg for the remainder of the print (I don't see that option if I edit individual objects).

 

Thanks in advance,

To get the test patch printed first, Print Settings -> Output options -> Complete individual objects must be activated (Advanced mode) and the test patch be in the top of the object list.
This will first completely print the test object and after that the other objects. Be aware that there must be room for the extruder, all objects will be printed one at the time.

To my knowledge fill angle is for all objects to be printed - but you could rotate the one you that should have 0 deg rotation infill.

Have a look at my designs on PrusaPrinters ;)...

Thanks!  I didn't know about the print sequence and I'll try the rotation idea.
