Print as a 2 part process?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print as a 2 part process?

Is there any way to get Cura/Ulti to print an object to a certain height then stop? Allowing you to pre-post-process parts of an object before continuing the print process and finishing the object?

Many thanks.

There is a 'Pause at Z" plugin. But, I am not sure what you mean when you say pre-post process. If it involves moving the build plate, I am not sure how you could maintain any calibration.

But, people do things like print to a certain level, drop in an object and then continue printing around and on top of it.

    • "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.
