Skirts

Hi all,

I've set up a file in Sketchup which has multiple objects on it. When I bring it into Cura and look at layer view it has only put a skirt around one of the objects. How do I either (A) Make one big skirt to go around everything or (B) a seperate skirt for each object?

Thanks

    I've seen this. It seems like a bug to me. To do seperate skirt for each object you can right click on the object in cura and select "split object into parts". Hopefully that will do what it is supposed to do - make sure you view in xray view first as if there is anything red it will split that part up into more parts which would be bad.

    Then if you set gantry height to 0 in machine settings it will put a skirt around each object. You can see what will happen in advance in layer view (instead of having to print something before you find out it won't work).
