Project Planner with tall objects


Recommended Posts

Posted · Project Planner with tall objects

Hello Daid,

First off, I love Cura. By far the most sorted all around package I have tried and has made a huge difference in what I can do with my Ultimaker. Last night I came across one issue though...

If you build several objects in Project Planner, the first object cannot be higher than about 60mm before it hits the X sliding beam when the platform moves up to start the next object. The Z axis motor has a lot of force when it crashes, and puts a big dent into the finished part, thankfully I heard the noise and investigated.

Is there a way of implementing a check for the object height? At the moment it only uses x-y dimensions as far as I can see.

Perhaps it could build all of the parts up to a height of 60mm, then go back and do the next 60mm layer? There would only be joining strings at 60mm intervals.

Keep up the good work!

    First, Thanks for all the praises :)

    There is currently no z-check in the project planner. The idea to print up to 60mm of each part has been raised already, but it hasn't been implemented yet.

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
