Model Position in Cura 2.5

Posted · Model Position in Cura 2.5

Hi,

I'm trying to print 30+ models at a time in Cura 2.5, but when I load one in and the duplicate it they all appear in a long line off the build plate. Is there anyway to automatically set the position of the models around the centre of the build platform working outwards? If not this is something that really needs to be implemented.

    Hi Rich,

    I really miss the old behaviour of duplicating and positioning objects in Cura Version 15.04. It was so easy to multiply models in a grid shape rapidly. In newer Cura versions I duplicated an object along one axis, grouped them and duplicated the rows along the second axis. More steps (sometimes with try and error) but a workaround. I wonder what was changed in cura 2.x software resulting in such a chaotic multiply order?

    Regards

    Michael

    It was rewritten from scratch.

    Cura 2.6 will have a much improved model arrangement mechanism.

      • 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
