Different settings for different models on the same build plate.

Recommended Posts

This would allow for different parts with different setting requirements to be placed on the same build plate and printed in one.

i.e: One part with support material and one part without all in one print.

Personally I think it would make the printer more useful for industry and hobbyists alike!

Doesn't cura already do this? Select one of the items on the build plate by clicking on it and then over in the left side of the screen there should be something called "per model settings". Initially there are only a few settings you can modify but you can enable many more. Layer height is one of the few settings you can't modify "per model".

    • "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.
