sequential object printing - my fan is going hit any thing?

Posted · sequential object printing - my fan is going hit any thing?

Hello,

I have just updated to latest Mac version of Cura and found when printing multiple objects, they are printed from right to left sequentially instead of printing them together in a summarised layer. (the print head will finish one first, and then move the next one, z axis lower to the bottom layer of next object again)

As the objects i am printing are flat, my fan duct on the right side of my nozzle did not hit the finished objects when it is printing. I am just wondering if my objects is higher than my fan, what will happen, will it hit something? I am not expecting Cura tell the print head to avoid hitting finished objects.

Should I change my fan to the left side of my nozzle? what if someone have two fans on both side?

Regards,

Jason

    Go to file "machine settings..." and adjust the numbers there. hopefully that will get Cura to print in the other direction. I don't know if Daid implemented it in Cura but it should print starting towards the side with the largest clearance number first.

    If you want to force each part to print all at the same time then set the gantry height to zero.

    The fan is usually on the left side, not on the right (as by the assembly instructions), you can adjust the head size in the machine settings to change this. (swap the Xmin/Xmax head size settings)
