Sequential printing: object-by-object

Would you like to print two parts independently? The setting you are looking for may be "Sequential printing: object-by-object". This will print the objects on your bed one part at a time as opposed to one layer at a time like in the default setting "Continuous Printing".

"Sequential Printing" has the potential for severe printer damage, so we recommend you email with your 3D part files so that we can slice it for you. To give you basic instructions of what this setting does, here are the steps to set it up:

  1. Spread out you 3D models on the bed more than 100mm to ensure that the bridge rail will not collide with them.
  2. Make a process for each of the parts that you wish to print.
  3. Go into the process settings for each process, click "Select Models" in the bottom left corner of the window, and choose the part you wish to print with that profile.

  4. Repeat this process for the other print, but make sure to select the other model.
  5. Press "Prepare to Print" when you are finished, and a window will pop up titled "Select Processes​ for Printing". Highlight both processes, select "Sequential Printing"
  6. The max height clearance for Gigabot depends on the how far away the parts are from each other. As mentioned earlier, good practice is to spread out the parts over 100mm apart on the bed to reduce the risk of the print head from colliding with the previously printed part. In any case, once again, we recommend that you email if you wish to print parts like this to ensure that you don't have a print failure.
