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

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.

    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!

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
