Slicing Multiple Files at the same time


Recommended Posts

Posted · Slicing Multiple Files at the same time

Hello their! I was wondering how to slice multiple files at the same time with a other cura profile. I might get a new 3D printer and I have 152 files for selling on my store and I don't want to slice them indivually. Is there a way where I can add folders and Cura will slice it with a different Cura profile.

    You want to select a folder and tell Cura to slice all the files in the folder but you want different settings profiles for some models?

    How would Cura know which profile goes with which model file?


    If they all used the same profile then maybe you could write a script that would work.  My own experience is that each model needs it's own love and so canned profiles rarely work as well as custom settings tailored to each particular model.

    So you would start Cura and select a folder. Then your automation would:

    1. Load a model.
    2. Slice
    3. Save the gcode
    4. Clear the build plate
    5. Repeat

    The problem I see is a lack of quality control.  If there were problems you wouldn't know about it until the print at least started.  That could happen 152 times.
