Collision on sequential printing

Fri Jan 18, 2019 8:46 am

Hello to all of you,

I want to print sequentially (object by object) with Simplify3D, six or more pieces on my tray.

I wanted to know if it was possible to simulate the possible collisions between the print head and the parts so that they could be arranged properly.

Thank you for your answers.

In a nutshell....no.

The sequential printing only has a settable clearance in the vertical direction (Z axis) to prevent a collision between the underside of the print head assembly and existing printed layers.

And I cannot see there being any realistic possibility of there being anything more as print head assemblies and printer slides/carriages vary so much it would be impracticable to cater for all the permutations.

Works in Cura. You provide the dimensions of the print head assembly.

You can check travel moves window. Measure your head before and try to place objects right on your printing bed.
