Cura 2.3 - Merge issue / Dual color print

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

So I've been having a blast with my UM3 Extended! I've been messing around with the PVA, and sadly ran out. So now I want to mess with dual color parts. I'm having an issue though. I made a quick design and cut it into 3 pieces to test with dual colors. Now the issue. I bring in both stls and when I go to "merge" the 2 pieces they just get thrown together and it doesn't sit flush together as I designed it to be.

Any suggestions or help that you can give me is GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!!

Note that the Option or Alt are not necessary.

Shift + click: add to the selection (select multiple models)

Ctrl + click or Command + click: select a single object in a group / merged models

Other key combinations worth mentioning (where Ctrl should be replaced with Command on OSX):

Ctrl + A: select all models

Ctrl + G: group selected models

Ctrl + Alt + G: merge selected models

Ctrl + Shift + G: ungroup/unmerge selected models

The difference between grouping and merging is that when grouping models their location on the build plate are not changed. When merging, the models are united by their origin like they were modeled.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      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.
