Print one at a time

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print one at a time

Hello,

I am Currently printing out many chess pieces and would like to know how to disable or override cura in deciding the height with which it will allow you to print multiple objects higher than the bottom rails.

Yes I know the has a risk as I have already had a problem. my standard size castles (bishops) will not fit under the rails once printed however the cura software will still allow this to print in multiples. the trick I found was to position them in the correct orientations and they will not clash. you can only print 4 at a time other wise you will still clash. I need to be able to do this with other taller pieces instead of one at a time once I get taller than a castle.

My request for this is because I could load up, for example, two bishops a king and a queen and let them all print but one at a time, not all at once. this would save a load of time as you would not have to sit and wait for a print to finish and then re load. you could then set the four items away overnight and keep the printer running for 6 to 8 hours and have 4 prints complete as opposed to 1.5 hours and 1 print.

Any ideas or thoughts welcome.

PS I don't really like the finish when printing multiples all the same time....retractions and blemish is no good although I do get this problem with the quarks.

Mark
