Suppose you’re printing a bunch of models at the same time, and one or some might fail midway. Restarting print every time wastes time and filament, while continuing could cause other issues.

That's why Flashforge Adventurer 5M series offers the Exclude objects feature. If a model fails, you can skip it and continue printing the rest without any issues.

As shown below, without the Exclude objects feature enabled, layer shifting in one model caused the entire print job to fail.

However, with the Exclude objects feature enabled, the printer will automatically skip the failed model and only print the other two.

(Print results with Exclude objects enabled)

If you need to print multiple models, you can check the [Exclude objects] option as default slicing setting. This allows you to enable Exclude objects directly on the printer if any issues arise.

Note:

  1. First, upgrade your Adventurer 5M series to the latest firmware (version 2.6.5).
  2. Install and use OrcaSlicer 2.0 for slicing.
  3. Orca-Flashforge doesn't currently support this, but it's in development.
