Rearranging the objects on the print bed

Recommended Posts

Posted · Rearranging the objects on the print bed

Sometimes I end up manually moving objects around in Cura for optimal placement of multiples. For example, printing a bunch of triangles would make more sense if some are rotated 180 degrees to the next. You can put them closer together and fit more on the bed. Or if I need just a little extra time between two objects, I will move them to opposite, diagonal corners. The object I'm printing right now is a good example. Cura can only place 15 copies on the bed, however if I do it manually, I can fit 21 and still have room left for more.

However, moving multiple objects is a tedious process as you can only select one at a time. Is there a way to select multiple objects and move them together as a group?

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
