A lot of amazing 3D print models are composed of dozens or hundreds of objects.
Although extremely attractive, there are many challenges when a user actually begins to build them, the most common ones are
Bambu Studio provides the following key features to fix these pain points and make 3D print workflow much smoother than ever for both content creators and end-users.
Bambu studio's great progress in the workflow is to support a multi-plates mechanism. It places tens of hundreds of objects on multiple plates orderly, and each plate represents a printing task. Compared with placing these objects in multiple project files, a single project file has a global perspective of the model, allowing users to easily plan the objects placed in each print task (by dragging objects between different plates in 3D scene).
At the same time, the multi-plate mechanism is also the basis for switching between part and assembly form

Project resource files contain all auxiliary resources that are necessary for a project.

Splitting a model into parts makes it easier to print. The user can print parts with different colors even without an AMS device.
Assembly view is particularly useful in colorizing models, setting slicing parameters for parts, and assembling printed parts.
In Bambu Studio, you can switch between them freely.
NOTE: Assembly form requires that the original import model is an assembled one, like a STEP file.
3MF file is actually a zip and is much smaller than STLs. It holds everything necessary in a project, like
Importing a step file format is recommended. Compared with STL, it provides more important information for the project.
All settings and project files are ready in a single 3mf file and can be used directly.
No multiple project files(each for a print task), no cumbersome model coloring, no complicated parameter tuning, and no need to worry about the loss of important resources like BOM and assembly guide in the process of model propagation.
Furthermore, even if the model has been disassembled into scattered parts, the user can still view the complete assembly form and explosion form of the model in the assembly view. This provides great convenience for the user to customize the model colors and is helpful during the model assembling procedure.
NOTE: This requires the author imports a STEP model.
