very easy to do with Simplify 3D...  doesnt appear to be possible with Cura.

It very helpful when calibrating new materials.

    It looks like it can be done using the Search and Replace plugin.  One for each model on the build plate.  Part of the replace string could be M109 with the R parameter or M104 S.  If the printer had to wait for the temperature check then the nozzle my be in contact with the part.  That probably wouldn't be good.

    Playing with it a bit and using M109 R it comes out like this...

    ;MESH:Indicator Brkt.stl
    M109 R210

    and then

    ;MESH:Indicator Brkt.stl(1)
    M109 R200

    So the temperature would alternate when the model changed.

    I didn't play with "one at a time" but it may be something similar.

     

    BTW has Simplify3D released a new version?  4.1 was released something like 4 years ago?

    I'd prefer to make parts, not become a programmer to do it...

    New releases are a sign that software still needs improving...

    Ah.  Perfection...

    So all 5703 bug reports have been resolved?  Impressive.
