Sequential printing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Sequential printing

Hello all,


I use the sequential printing feature a lot, but I arrange the prints into a skewed grid from left to right, front to back, so that I can print full height and don't need to worry about the gantry hitting the objects.


However, it takes a bit of work arranging them like that, because there is basically no help from the software, for workflow that could be fully automated. Since I am new to this software it might be that I am doing something wrong, hence I have a few questions:


1) Is there any way to re-arrange the print order? Currently when I open multiple stl files, I have to slice them once and memorize the order, so I can arrange them properly on the build plate and then slice them again for actual printing.


2) Does there exist any plans to implement this kind of "limitless height sequential" printing feature, or is there a plugin for that? The marketplace offered nothing.


3) If not, does the plugin framework export such functionality (namely, re-arranging print order and object position)? If I get annoyed enough I might implement it myself then.


Any ideas and such regarding to this topic are very welcome, thank you.

        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
