One at a time mode at same object

Recommended Posts

Posted · One at a time mode at same object

Is there a way to enable "one-at-a-time-mode for a single object that has long travel moves? that would save a lot of printing-time and -quality. I tried to split the object but this way cura was unable to slice.. the only way was to have two gcode files that i would run after each other without removing the first object from the heatbed..

thx for your help

I think people need some more information

Like what printer do you have ?

What are the dimensions of the objects ?

etc.

 

I got an Ender 3 at home and in Cura it has the option to print "part for part" instead of layer by layer. Difference with the Ender 3 is that the heated bed moves in de Y axis and not the Z axis as the Ultimaker S5 does. Which makes hitting object you already printed less likely. This is probably the reason why the option is not showing when you have a Ultimaker printer selected in Cura. The risk of hitting an object and therefor damaging your printer is to high.

 

You probably can "mislead" Cura and your printer but the real question is " is it worth the risk ? "
