Project planner - print per layer instead of per object?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Project planner - print per layer instead of per object?

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.

Check the toolbar of the project planner, there is a button with is called "all at once", that enables this option.

I'm updating the manual for the next version, with lots more pictures.

Small warning with this feature, the nozzle will dive into the printed object with Cura 12.08 because it adds an G1 Z0 at the end!
