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!

Andrew

    • 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.
