I'm printing a box to hold a temperature display on top of my 3D printer box, and for this - second - prototype I'm printing all three parts together: the face and sides, the base and back, and the display securing clip. This is just so I get a "matched set", and it'll all be ready to assemble together. It's three components in Fusion 360, so it's just a case of adding all three to a new design, spacing them out a little, and printing them.

Except ... I put the tiny mounting clip (8x13x3 mm) 2mm low in the design, and didn't notice - so Cura added a 2mm "foot" to the other components before it started printing ... and I didn't notice for a couple of hours. D'Oh! | :doh:

In software terms, that's like a three hour processing run being thrown away because you didn't handle a null reference exception ... I'm an idiot.
