Cura (3.6.0) does not support multi bodies properly


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura (3.6.0) does not support multi bodies properly

My goal was to print a part in nylon with a TPU overmolding. It seems like there's no way to set this up in Cura.

When I open a STL file that has two bodies, they are not recognized as such and there's no way to assign an extruder to a body independently of the other.

If I open two STL files, their position in space relative to one another is not respected. I can move one body to try to get it near where I want (after I discovered the option to disable "Automatically drop models to the build plate") but it's not precise, especially with Cura's display and perspective view.

    Two separate STL files are the way to go, but  you should use the "Merge Models" function.

     

    Take a look at the manual:
