Posted · Fusion 360 starts new Cura 3.1 instance for every 3D print

I've just installed Cura 3.1 on my Win 10 PC, when I use Fusion 360 to send a print to Cura it opens a new instance for every item I print. With the older verisons of Cura all prints sent from Fusion 360 opened up in the same instance of Cura, i.e. on the same printbed, which is very convenient when you want to print several things at once.

Is there any way to get Cura 3.1 to behave in the same way?

    This is an issue in the way that Fusion360 calls Cura. Cura has a --single-instance flag that can be used to solve this. Best would be to contact the Fusion360 developers.

     

    For reference, a similar GitHub issue: https://github.com/Ultimaker/Cura/issues/3116 that contains a workaround.
