Is there a way to decrease the buffer space on prints with multiple objects?

Posted · Is there a way to decrease the buffer space on prints with multiple objects?

I am trying to print out multiple little keychains, but the buffer space between the objects is taking away from the maximum amount of items on the print bed. What setting should I look for? Also, the keychains change color halfway through. Is there a way that I could get all of the objects to print halfway, then pause so I can change the material?

    If you're printing "One at a time" you will have quite a large margin around the objects as it's needed to make sure the gantry clears.

    If you're printing them all at once it's probably the skirt that gets in the way. Open the expert settings and set skirt line count to 0 (or decrease the start distance) and see how that goes.
