Problem with model settings

Recommended Posts

Iam trying to do variations of an identical item. Today, I tried to have one print operation print one item with 20% infill and a second one at 40%.

 

I set the underlying settings to print at 20% and loaded two models to print and the slicing told me that the combined job would take 11 hours to print. I then highlighted one of the models, brought up the "per model setting", chosse modify infill setting - at which point the slcing tells me the job will last 5.5 hours, and whatever I then do I never seem to be able to get it to time this as a two item print job, though the second item is never "greyed out" to indicate its unprintable. It's just coloured as a slightly washed out version of the underlhing yellow.

 

IIn the Layer view, only one of the items is actively modified as I check how things will print.

 

I click on infill density and then close. That allows me to change infill density to 40% and I'm left with the picture below, but I can't see any other action that I can take to get Cura to recognise there are two items to print. It makes no difference whether I tell it to print one at a time or simultaneously.

 

Is there anything I am missing out?

Set the Mesh Type back to “Normal mesh” if you want it to be printed.

 

You misread the other option; it modifies the infill of another model if it is placed on the buildplate in such a way that it overlaps that other model.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
