Cura 2.7.0 won't slice with 'One at a Time' enabled

Hi all,

I have a problem with Cura 2.7.0 stable. I want to print multiple parts with 'One at a Time' setting enabled, but Cura just refuses to slice. Settings for printhead have been set to a minimum to avoid the 'grey shadows' overlapping.

Cura does not give any visible warnings yet it doesn't doe anything when I press Prepare. It does slice normally when i have it in 'All at once' mode. Furthermore I have tested with just two models on the platform and having them as far away from each other as possible, still no slicing.

Here is an image of what I'm trying to slice:


Is there a setting I've overlooked or is this a bug in Cura?

    Based on the assumption that their customers are too stupid to use the feature without hurting something, the developers intentionally disabled sequential printing in 2.7.

    There is another recent thread that calls out a tweak to re-enable it for those capable of arranging objects on a buildplate.

    @Eldrick, please keep your personal frustrations in check. There is no reason to assume that @GuusR is affected by the same issue as you are. As far as I can see OP is using a single extrusion printer.

    @GuusR, can you post logs somewhere so we can see what is going wrong?


    Please don't paste the logs here, because they will likely be very large and the forum will mangle the input. Instead, please post them on eg pastebin.com and post a link here.

    I've found two issues in your log;

    1. You seem to be using a custom fdm machine. At some point the head size had an issue with that, which caused incorrect data to be there. This should be fixed. Try readding the machine (and removing the old one)

    2. When the wrong data got passed along, the rest of the code didn't handle that gracefully. I've just resolved that for 3.0

      • 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
