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)

      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
