Problem with "one at a time" mode

Recommended Posts

So, I've been printing large batches of models for a friend, and I've been printing them in one at a time mode.  And, well, this has been happening:

As you can see, first model comes out fine, but after that, it's like its retracting when it finishes one and not advancing before it starts the next.  Now, these guys are printed with a brim, so it hasn't caused a problem, but I do have some pieces coming up soon that won't have the brim.  Any ideas?  

Using an Ultimaker 2+ and Cura 15.04.4

I think there is a bug in one-at-a-time mode where it retracts then resets everything and forgets that it retracts and then retracts again and then unretracts. Maybe see if the bug is in cura 2.1.2?

The simplest solution is probably to use skirt. If you don't use brim then it will instead use skirt be default. Make sure the skirt is a minimum length (maybe 200mm?) to get the extruder flowing again.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
