I think they are too tall. Or at least that is what I noticed when I have this issue. As a test try laying them on their sides or use a smaller part to see if it kicks in.

Look at your machine settings "gantry height". You don't want those rooks to touch the cross bars. But if you place them far enough apart at a diagonal you can have it ignore the gantry height settings by setting it to 200mm. Or maybe it's a feature? Have the gantry knock one of the rooks over when it starts printing the second rook?

By the way you can tell if it's going to do "one at a time" by moving through the layers in layer view. If in one-at-a-time mode it will show it print one part, then go back down and do the next.

The parts need to be far enough apart so the fans won't hit them. So there are 6 settings you have to check:

Check under "tools" to make sure it is selected "one at a time". Then check under machine settings and look at the 5 distances. The gantry height must be taller than your tallest part. Then look at the other 4 distances, they must be small enough or your parts must be farther than these distances apart.
