how can i print multiple items in one print

Postby magicmarc » Mon May 01, 2017 7:06 pm

so basically im making 'posts' for a maze, made out of foam board, for robots,,, and the posts hold the foam board, etc... but i dont want to print each post one at a time... so do i need to import the .stl file into tinker or something and duplicate it a few times and resave, and print that.. or is there an easier way using matter control to just print multiple items on the bed to save time, instead of doing one at a time?
thanks everyone!

Click edit in matter control, and there should be a copy option along the bottom.
