Multiple objects with different build settings?

Recommended Posts

Apologies for what may well have been answered before (I did look but couldn't find anything) but I'd welcome any advice or even relevant a link.

I'm running a UM2 printer with Cura software (mainly using 15.04.6 but have also downloaded 2.1.1 to try) and my question is whether it is possible to have different settings for individual objects within a multiple object build. In case that is clear as mud, if I have object A that I would like printed with normal quality and 20% infill, is it possible to print that together with another object B that I want in fine quality and 50% infill?

I know that wouldn't be necessarily possible (or at least easy) if they were printed all at once but I don't imagine it being a problem if printed one at a time. Is this already possible somewhere and if not could it be included in a future version of Cura?

      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.
