How to control whether multiple objects are printed all at once or one by one?

Posted · How to control whether multiple objects are printed all at once or one by one?

When I multiply models they are printed sequentially or together seemingly randomly but I cannot find where to define this. It causes me a lot of trouble, since sequential printing is a must for flexible filaments.

I saw gr5's suggestion of setting the gantry height to 0 but this is a tip intended to force all copies to be printed at once.

I have 2 small spheres (see gcode) that I want to print sequentially. Where do you to set this.

    In Cura under Tools check "Print one at a time" instead of "Print all at once"

    This is influenceed by the height of your print. If objects are too tall then this option may not be available.

    edit - assuming you are using Cura that is.....

    In addition to what skinny-kid said, I've found that sometimes you need to nudge one or two of the copies to make it re-slice properly when you change that option.

    Thanks for the pointer, Skinny. Should have spotted that myself. I'm posting a screenshot for those other newbies who don't find that right away.5a3319e37aaa8_allatoncevsoneatatime.thumb.png.f2a294f4aa17298e311e662f4faf3a2b.png

    One at a Time printing is not supported for multiextrusion printers.

    It will be in the next release; in that release you can disable unused extruders. So as long as you don't use both extruders, you can print one at a time.
