Only first item gets a skirt (one at a time print settings), all items need one!

Hi guys,

Every item I print in ABS with a skirt turns out beautifully, the items without skirt are all messed up on the bottom layers. Whenever I try to print multiple objects with skirt in one at a time mode, only the first one gets its skirt althought the print preview does show a skirt for all items. Does anyone know how to adjust settings so every item printed this way gets a skirt? Or is this a bug? I would appreciate a solution soon because my time to market should be drastically higher; I can only print one item at nighttime now.

Settings:

Cura 2.3.0

Nozzle 0,4mm

Fine presets used

ABS

One at a time, 4 items

    yes it is a bug, reported it already and hope for a solution in the next release!

    Use it a lot also, the workaround is to add more skirt lines to get the material going before the actual object starts.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
