More than one object in Vase-Mode?

I print a lot of tiny containers that I find vase mode (spiralize outer contour) the best for.

The biggest advantage is, that there is no jumping around , it just keeps pushing filament until the print is finished. So obviously, the printer can't jump around from one print to another to finish the individual layers.

However, since the containers are so tiny, I could fit one in each corner without the printer hitting the other finished prints.

Is there any option so cura just prints a container in the bottom left corner from start to finish, then keeps the temperature, jumps to the bottom right corner and instantly starts another print in vase mode from start to finish?

    Under Special Modes, set Print Sequence to One at a Time.  Make sure it works in preview but if your gantry height is greater than the height of the parts it should slice.

     

    Using "One at a time" brings the Machine Settings / Print Head Settings into play.  Cura should notice if there is a crash and in that case it won't slice.
