More than one object in Vase-Mode?

Posted · 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.

      • 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
