Recommended Posts

Hey just a qucick question, im trying to print 9 of theys things bes as you can see fomr the image they refuse to print one at a time. https://www.dropbox.com/s/haqpg1tjqfedmy2/Screenshot%202014-11-24%2020.25.07.png?dl=0 and the layors https://www.dropbox.com/s/1cu7j5obwpbu449/Screenshot%202014-11-24%2020.24.54.png?dl=0

I tested out another model and it sliced just fine, it prints one them movers over and prints the next. anyone have this problem too?

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?

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.
