Multiple objects with different build settings?

Posted · Multiple objects with different build settings?

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?

    I received a reply from ultimaker by email saying that this should be an option in 2.1.1 but when I went to try that option is still greyed out after selecting an object... Any thoughts?

    Thanks for all your replies! :oP

    Anyway, another reply from Ultimaker and I'm sorted. I can now confirm that in 2.1.1 it's possible to alter individual object settings provided you're in 'advanced' mode (which makes sense). Maybe this will be of use to someone else in the future.
