Object distance by printing "One at time"

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Object distance by printing "One at time"

When i choosing this option to print objects one at time,the distance between the objects is too short when it prints.

Can i set the distance between the objects?

I know that i can move the objects manually, but i search an option that keep the distance automatically.

Thanks for help!

    You need to tell Cura the size of your print head.  Because when it goes to print the second car the print head might hit the first car.  So there are some numbers to adjust - go to "manage printers" then "machine settings" then adjust the printhead settings.  I think they specify how much room to leave around the nozzle (distance from nozzle to the 4 sides of the print head).  Also it won't print anything taller than the gantry height (or that part has to be last if only one part is taller than the gantry height).

    Oh and if you are using an ultimaker printer than don't touch those numbers, lol.  Or you will likely knock the first 2 cars off the print bed.
