Need to print the same object in order.

Tue Apr 27, 2021 11:01 am

I am experimenting with printing chocolate. The trick to chocolate is slow printing and predictable cooling times. I am setting the per layer min print time to 160 seconds to allow for cooling.

I have searched, to no avail, on how to have the layers on n objects always print in the same order. this will allow for consistent cooling.

right now the order of printing is

1 2 3 4 4 3 2 1 1 2 3 4 4 3 2 1

the parts that are first and last in this sequence suffer because a second layer is deposited right on top of a still molten layer.

I have seen some talk about using different profiles, but i cannot make sense of this. these are copies of the same object and i want to use the same profile on all of them but be able to say always print in the same order. I do not care what order they are printed in, i just need to know it is going to be the same on each layer.

any pointers in this direction will be appreciated.
