Posted · Beginner Question - Cura 2.3.1 - Center multiple objects

I cant seem to find how to center multiple objects at once. If I right click on 1 model it has option "Center model on Platform. But I'm looking to do this with 2 objects, so both are centered equally on build plate.

I apologize for basic question, but I can't seem to find process to center multiple objects on build plate. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cura doesn't do that.

    The closet thing to it would be to Shift-Click both models to select them both, then right-click and select 'Group Models', then right-click again and select "Center Model on Platform".

    it is: select all -> right click -> merge models and then center.

    If you want to have different materials/colors to the parts, use the 'per model settings', left on your screen.

        (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.
