Fusion 360 to Cura: prints as single objects vs. one object for each component

Posted · Fusion 360 to Cura: prints as single objects vs. one object for each component

I have recently replaced my main machine. Now, every time I print from Fusion to Cura, each component is treated as a separate object. This creates all sorts of headaches in Cura, because objects are pushed down to the build plate and lose their joints to each other. I am not sure whether this new behavior is due to some updates, or (more likely) to some erroneous setting in either Fusion or Cura. Can anybody shed light on this?

    This was, what I did in the past:

    Here is an example:

    Blue are steps to print (I choose the top hierarchic for this demo)

    Red is the part I exclude from from the print.

    Result for Cura is one stl to print
