print one at the time - adding issue

Recommended Posts


I noticed that sometimes the print one at the time feature seems to roll back to print all at once when placing the objects to print in cura even if the option remained set to print one at the time.

I can reproduce the issue by simply loading more objects in after placing a few already. I use drag and drop to add the objects and basically every time I add a new one the print head bounding box arount the object goes back to minimal size instead of staying full size.

I dont know if it will actually print one at the time with wrong placment or not but that could mean smashing into other prints.

Its easy to fix on the user side but its always better to not having to.

Any objects higher then the gantry height (55mm by default) will cause Cura to go into "all at once mode"

Also, it tries to figure out a printing order without collisions. It it cannot find that, it will do a "all at once". But should be quite rare...

    • "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.
