Multi model print order.

Recommended Posts

When printing models one at a time, Cura slices them so that they print from the front of the UM2 first and the rear for the last model. Can I reverse this?

The reason is for my webcam. Currently the first print obscures the remaining ones.

Yes. Sort of. In machine settings, set the ymin value larger than ymax. If it's only 1mm larger it will be tricky as you need to get the parts closer than that distance between them. So make it 5 or 10mm larger and postition parts so close that they move each other around. This will force it to print rear to front. But it will give you 5 to 10mm less space between parts.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
