Posted · Print around objects on the printboard - collision avoiding

Hi,

 

I am an artist and I have some collages which have certain extensions in width and height, I would like to print around, so I need to tell CURA

not to pass with the printhead in certain areas. I would call them "no-go-areas" for the print-head. Otherwise I would have collissions.

Who could I do that? I am attaching a file for better understanding. Thanks

    I don't know if it is technically possible. But mechanically, the print head is so bulky that the nozzle can not come close to any object anyway, without hitting it. So I think it would be best to print the models separate, and then "collage" it together with the rest of the collage?
