General question about printing

Post by pegazus80 » Tue Feb 02, 2016 7:10 am

Hey forumers!

I have a basical question but I think its better to ask like doing something crazy ;)
Is it possible to slice a part than print the bottom part of that than later print the top part of the object without moving the first one from the bed.
I would place some metal parts in my print (these will not be higher than the top layer as the first part so the hot-end can't stock) than finish my object.
If this process possible what do I need to watch?
Thank you for your help in advance :D

I tought to this solution too but I have to stop the printing at very exact places so this is why I tought for the slice.
Sometimes if I pause the print it continues till finish a pack of work so I can't keep my exact slices

Model it in two parts. First part normal printing, second part with the slicer option to start with a certain distance from the bed.
I would prefer the pause option, but the above should work.
