Project planner - print per layer instead of per object?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to have the project planner print per-layer instead of per-object? What I mean is, if you add 5 models to the project planner, currently it prints object 1, then object 2, etc. Is it instead possible to print layer 1 of each object, then layer 2 of each object, and so on? This would enable tighter object packing as you don't have to worry about the head crashing into each one. However a drawback would be if you have a failure at some point it ruins all the objects, instead of just the one it's currently printing.
