Project Planner with tall objects

Recommended Posts

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!

    • "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.
