Print multiple layers before travel?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print multiple layers before travel?

Is there a way to get cura to print several layers before travel? I print several parts at a time, and it seems things would be more efficient to print 2-3-4 layers before moving to the other part. Both in terms of travel, oozing, etc. Every printer should have enough clearance for a few layers of this.

    Nope. We've done some experiments with this, but it caused quite a few issues with a lot of models, so it was abandoned at some point (mostly because the actual advantage wasn't that great, to begin with)
