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...

        (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.
