Print multiple parts in shadowed empty space

Recommended Posts


I think this is normal behaviour, but just want to confirm it.

I am trying to print 2 STLs, one containing like two "L" parts and the other STL is a bolt, there is lots of room inside de first STL and I would like to print my bolt in there, Cura doesnt let me. Printing all at the same time, not one at a time.

Is there any reason for this or just simplifying things?


I edited STL with a modelling software to merge both STLs into one, and then it printed fine, I just want to know if I have to do it this way every time or there ir another way of doing it in Cura.

Thank you very much,

Luis Rodenas

    • "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.
