Select and Align Like Powerpoint

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I love your Cura and wonder if you take requests?

It's concerning lining up small items to reduce the head movement and give a nice length for the head to move. I try to line them up on the grid, but it takes ages fiddling moving items. In MS PowerPoint you can drag a square around a few items (another idea) select them and then align them up.

Is this possible?

One more if I may :)

Can Cura have the ability to have some items set at a light density, but others at a different setting? (also with and without support).

Thanks and regards

Martin

It already has. You have to switch to "custom" mode. Now select the object you want to change the infill density of, and press the "Per model settings" tool in the toobar. Click "Select settings" and tick the "Infill density" checkbox. Now you can set the infill density for only the selected model.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
