Print "one at a time" with multiple parts in single STL?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print "one at a time" with multiple parts in single STL?

Sometimes, it makes sense for a collection of parts to be put in a single STL (or that is how the author distributes them). Would it be beyond the scope of Cura to recognize when there is sufficient space between objects in an STL and allow them to be printed using "one at a time" mode?

If you right click on the object you'll see an option called "Split object into parts", after that is done you should be able to move things around to make "one at a time" possible.

Just found that option. I think it provides what the OP was seeking.

Thanks. Never noticed that you could do that. Very helpful.

Before splitting - look at the "plate" in xray mode. If you see any "red" then don't split it as it will split a single part into multiple, lol.

I had some text on a part that had an interior wall. After splitting I got all the text as seperate prints!
