Cura 4.12.1 - multiplication & support-blocking (ISSUE)


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura 4.12.1 - multiplication & support-blocking (ISSUE)
Multiplicated objects with custom support-blockers do not appear as exact copy - instead all support-blockers are ADDED as extra material, e.g. elevating the base layer in copied object, instead of being an exact copy (check the below picture - left: original, right: multiplied one)
Plus: 7.6MB project file loads way too long (like a 700MB one).
Anyone experienced such behaviour?

    Did you turn on "Print as Model" for that grouping?  Can you select the blocks using Control-LeftClick?  Can you UnGroup that model?


    You can stretch and scale a Support Blocker like you can a model.  You probably could have done all that with 2 or 3 instead of a hundred.
