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
