CURA seems to have a small limit of copies it can slice


Recommended Posts

Posted · CURA seems to have a small limit of copies it can slice

I need 40 basic rectangular blocks printed.

I then encountered the same issue I have in the past where if I make more than 10 copies of an object, some as simple as a rectangular block, the slicer just freezes.


See my image, I tried making 40 copies of that rectangular cap, cant slice.

I halved it to 20 and still can't slice.

It finally sliced with 10 copies.


What the heck, I dont want to print a 1hr print 4 times. What is going on??


Anyone knows or had this issue?

    Sometimes you can fool software.

    Open the STL file to bring the model in 4 times and slide them around to tighten up the pack.  Right click and "select all models".  Right click again and "Group" the models.  Right click again and "Multiply" 9 copies of the group.

    That will result in 10 groups of 4.  In Detroit schools that came out to 23 so even if it worked you may have to add more.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
