Overlapping Models Alert


I spent some time troubleshooting a print that kept crashing.  It seemed that the printer was extruding too much for only one model on the plater which caused a rough surface and eventual crash.  As I was fiddling with Prusaslicer, I realized that I had inserted two of the models and they were perfectly overlapped.  So I was printing two models in the space of one.  Is there a setting that would alert me to this fact?  If not, is there anything you can add to the software to highlight overlaps?

You can easily check this in the file overview:

(2 parts overlapped)




Statt zu klagen, dass wir nicht alles haben, was wir wollen, sollten wir lieber dankbar sein, dass wir nicht alles bekommen, was wir verdienen.

No, there is no warning for that.  Users are expected to not do things like that.  As Karl points out there is a tree list on the right.

I had the same issue. It occurred after changing from ASA to PLA on the same model - for some reason the two parts decided to change locations (they were spread apart)  and after several failed prints I found the problem - wish I saw this earlier 9-)
