How to adjust print settings per model in Ultimaker Cura

The print settings can be changed per model loaded on the build plate using the per model settings. This feature is only available when the print settings panel is set to custom mode. The feature provides the ability to have multiple models in Ultimaker Cura with a different printing strategy on the same build plate. This allows easy printing of batches of models for different purposes.

Note: This process adjusts the print settings of an individual model loaded on the build plate. To change the print settings of all models, simply adjust the settings in the print settings panel.

You can adjust a wide variety of print settings individually for the selected model the following way:

  1. Select the model you would like to have an adjusted print strategy to open the model toolbar on the left side of the screen
  2. Select the 'per model settings' tool to adjust its print settings
