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.
