Cura 2.3 - Allow overlapping bounding boxes


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 2.3 - Allow overlapping bounding boxes

Dear all,

I wanted to print two U-shaped parts in one run. However, if the place parts next to each other, the result exceeds the build plate size.

Therefore, I wanted to save space, by intertwining the U-shaped parts, i.e. just shift the one leg of one U-shaped part into the empty space of the second U-shaped part.

But Cura detects, that the bounding boxes intersect and moves the parts apart again, so I had to print them in separate runs.

I think this feature could be implemented with minimal resources, like with a message box or an advanced option. "Cura detected that the bounding boxes intersect. Do you want to A) separate the parts (recommended). B) Allow intersection of bounding boxes (experimental) c) Abort".

Already implemented this!

Check the preferences menu and toggle the "Ensure models are kept apart" option.

 

Thanks!

I was looking for something like that, but it seems I overlooked this.
