Re: Order of Printing Multiple Parts

I assume you've not tried using sequential printing then?

I also assume you've not seen the reduction in the printhead "jumping about the bed" and the subsequent reduction in print time.

And I also assume you've not seen the reduction in stringing and other issues caused by the printhead extruding just one layer and then jumping off elsewhere on the bed to print one layer on another part.....and so on!

Fair enough. Carry on.......

you got bunch of advice already but check out this

You said you don't know much about g-code but if you have ton of those to print time invested to learn this method will pay itself many times in shorter print time, higher quality print and material saved..
gcodestat integrates with Simplify3D and allow you to
Calculate print time accurately (acceleration, max speed, junction deviation all taken into consideration)
Embed M117 codes into G-Code
Upload your G-Code directly to Octoprint
open source and unlicence
