Machine settings with print sequence one-at-a-time.

Posted (edited) · Machine settings with print sequence one-at-a-time.

My machine settings, Printhead settings are as follows :

  X min 10

  Y min 10

  X max 25

  Y max 90

 

From all my searching, Cura is supposed to optimize the object order of printing according to these machine settings. When I do multiple copies with one-at-a-time setting, cura would space them at 10mm in X and Y direction, which is what I would expect. But no matter what I tried it always would print from back to front. That meant the objects would have to be place at 90mm apart in the Y direction. After much hair pulling  and searching with no success I decided to switch the Y min and max settings. So I put 90mm in Y min and 10 in Y max. According to the popup help in cura that is opposite of what it should be. But this was the cure I was looking for. It starting printing from front to back.

Is this an issue of the values being used backwards by cura?

Has anyone else come to this conclusion or even had this problem?

Or am I just missing something?

        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.
