Feature request: Better way to duplicate model in Cura 2.x

Recommended Posts

Posted · Feature request: Better way to duplicate model in Cura 2.x

My projects often involve printing a whole lot of the same model. Remember Cura 15.x and the way you duplicated models? Right click, duplicate, enter in how many copies to make and then it automagically put the model on the bed and rearranged them all to fit. Afterwards you could tweak things as needed. It was great, it was fast. Now with Cura 2, duplicating is such a pain. The "keep models separated" feature is basically useless (sure it keeps them separated, but it doesn't give a crap about keeping them on the bed) and with Cura trying to slice after each duplication, it really slows things down. Plus, if I go to crazy and try to duplicate a bunch real quick, Cura just gets stuck in a constant "Preparing to slice... slicing... preparing to slice" loop and I have to shut it down and start over. Can we please, please, PLEASE get something like the old cura 15.x duplication here?

I just wish there was a "Slice" button so my new laptop would spin and spin and spin every time I do something in Cura
