How do you set object print order?


Recommended Posts

Posted · How do you set object print order?

I wanted to make a simple test print with two flat squares, separated by ~nozzle distance to check if either is scraping the other.


Testing the righthand nozzle for scraping while the left is printing means I need to print two objects, and I'd like the lefthand one to print last.


Right now I don't see how to do this. Is it easy/possible?

    It used to be in cura that it would print them in the same order as you load them.  Maybe.  Although it prints the parts on the "ends" twice (with a layer shift in between).


    Anyway one solution might be to wait one layer and every other layer it should reverse directions (I think).
