Print one at a time

Recommended Posts

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

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
