13.06.4 'project planner' strange behavior

Hello,

A few days ago, I started using a trick with brim and rotating models to get fairly thin / odd shaped models (belt buckle ornaments with no obvious good point to set on the build plane) to print without support. I tilt the model back 45 degrees, sink a mm or so into the build plate, and run a brim. It's been working really well.

I just started a print job with two objects on the BP. These parts required some rotating. I think I did a 90 about X, 30 about Y, then a 45 about X again. Rather than building the parts one at a time in serial, the parts are being printed in parallel with all of the stringing between.

So, I sat back down at the computer and tried moving the models around to see if anything would change. The simulated tool path showed that no matter where I moved the models, it would continue to calculate a parallel tool path.

I deleted both models and tried again. With the models left in their as-dropped orientation with no rotation, everything works normally (models built one at a time).

So then I went and rotated the models into the orientation I wanted outside of cura and saved the stls in the new orientation. Reloaded into Cura and got the same result as when I rotated from within Cura (parallel printing).

Any thoughts on why this is happening?

Here are some screenshots of the simulated tool path and the first few lines of the code. If its helpful, I can post more of the code.

    Go to "file" "preferences". Set the 5 variables in the bottom left to the recommended settings.

    If gantry is 0 (or smaller than your object) it will print them all at the same time (parallel) so that is the most critical dimension. Just hover over each one and type in the default values for ultimaker.

      • 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
