One-at-a-time printing ignores printhead dimensions

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am using Cura 2.6.1. I need to print dozens of small 10x10x2.2 mm objects. Obviously, these are so short that there is zero interference with the gantry and printhead. I've got my gantry/printhead dimensions set in Cura, but I am getting a large offset rectangle of "keepout" on my prints. I'm not sure where this is coming from, since the gantry height is far taller than 2.2mm. How can I turn it off? Thanks!

I noticed that if I change the print mode to "all at once", it will allow me to space the prints close together (as expected) and then I can change it back to one-at-a-time and it will slice some of them for me, but it still seems a bit unhappy about these large rectangular keepouts.


Maybe there is a default value for the printhead dimensions that the "Prusa i3" profile isn't overwriting? If I can provide log files or anything to help, let me know.

    • "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.
