Copy Paste Replicate Feature does not work


#1

Hi,

I am having an issue with the ability to place multiple parts on one bed.

First, I cannot use the replicate feature since whoever designed it thought it was smart to place a huge gap between each part wasting most of the bed to open blank area. Useless!

Second… If I try to copy and paste, or import new parts in progressively gets slower and longer making it a 2 - 3 hour process to simply fill the bed with parts.

Is there anything I can do to solve this? I never had this issue in past versions but I can’t recall what version it was not an issue so I can try bouncing back to that one.

I am using a Windows 10 System that has way beyond the Ram and processing power needed so it is not the system unless there is something not updated that Z-Suite needs to operate at full speed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Replicate function have offset input, just type 0.1mm, there will be no gap between parts.

This does not work the way it needs to work.

See attached photos…

The first picture shows the bed with 122 parts. This took me over 8-10 hours to place spanning a 2 days of work due to the copy and paste issue, or even if I import one at a time.

The second picture shows 88 parts. This was done when I realized I could replicate a group. This one took me about 45 minutes.

The last one which shows 36 parts is the native way you are asking us to do it. This places a .10 mm space between individual parts which have each their own bed… You cannot place the part closer joining the bed. I mean… come on, really?

This issue has taken me 5 days to work around to get an acceptable 88 parts to print at one time. If you want your machines to work in a production environment this has to be fixed now.

Please tell me if there is a better work around than my 45 minute replicate group fix.

I think you will have better luck creating your parts grid in your CAD software and just export one large stl file to be loaded in Z-Suite.
