Print sequence disabled by UM3

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm trying to print two parts one after the other as I often did with my UM2+. Now with UM3 my Cura 2.3.1 says that the print sequence optin is hidden by the UM3. So I only can print all at once.

Does anyone know how to bring the option back?

Thanks a lot!

With patience. It is impossible to bring the option back in 2.3.1 yourself, but it may return in a future version.

The reason that the feature has been disabled for the UM3 is that it would be very likely that the head would collide with a previous print if it would move to/from the extruder switch bay. This would not be a problem with single extrusion prints, but Cura 2.3 does not know the difference between a single extrusion and a multi extrusion print when a multi extrusion printer is active.

Unless you give it a single extrusion profile? something like that is needed anyhow to provide the full bed size for single extrusion, would be nice to ad one-at-a-time as well then... so at least it's available in single mode

    • "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.
