Why won't this slice?

These pieces are obviously printing one at a time. I don't see why the cylindrical piece can't print first and then the blockish piece second.

 

But I'm obviously missing something here.

 

😕

In order to keep things simple (implementation wise) we simply don't account for this situation.

    The only way you would be able to print one at a time is by "stacking" them (one on top of the other). But then, there would be a lot of support involved and it's not the ideal way of printing. It is "do-able" but not practical.

     

    Most 3D printers work using "Layer by Layer" building.

    You can see that your work volume has been made shorter.  When you turn on "one at a time", instead of "Max Z" the top of the virtual volume is "Gantry Height".  You can increase the "gantry height" in your Machine Settings.  It would need to be taller than the bracket.  Be advised that Cura will still show a preview of them being printed "All at Once" because each part will have it's own Layer:0.  The gcode will have two instances of Layer:0 though.

     

    You need to be careful.  When you remove the Gantry Height safety, it's all on you to make sure there is no crash.

    I think it's best if I just print these pieces separately, as in separate gcode files. I just thought that this was a bug. Thanks.

      • 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
