Cura 3.4.1: Problem stacking models

Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura 3.4.1: Problem stacking models

I have two models, both look like a ring. I would like each to print with a different nozzle, i.e. the 1st with nozzle 1 (red) and the 2nd with nozzle 2 (black) but I need them to print as one object with 2 colors.

 

Here is my problem: I import both stl files into Cura and then try to stack one model over the other so they print as one. When I move the 2nd model over the 1st, with X and Y set to 0 and Z set to the top of the 1st model Cura resets the z value to 0 so the model drops into the 1st one. 

 

I am sure there is a way to accomplish what I am trying to do but I am not sure how. Suggestions please...

Go to the preferences section and look at the general settings. There you will find "Automatically drop models on buildplate." Uncheck that and you can place them on any desired height.

 

Also, just to be sure, if you want one to be one nozzle and the other to be another, select the model and click the nozzle selection on the left hand side in the tool box.
