Printing one by one

Recommended Posts

small question.

Is there a proper way to change the order in witch objects are printed when using the one by one option ?

if not, might be a good feature to put into cura

Usually it's top right -> bottom right -> top left -> bottom left

I just do it that way. But sometimes it depends on the height of the object and I haven't figured out how it chooses.... But you can start with that and just look at the slice view to see where it's going first.

Yeah. It uses the machine head size with and without fan brackets. These sizes are then used to make a minkowski sum around the convex 2d poly (the shadow that is visible) of the object. Based on the which of those polys intersect what you can figure out if there is a solution. It simply stops at the first solution that works (so it can sometimes give weird sequences)

    • "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.
