Print One at a Time in Cura with Duplicator i3 Prusa

Overview

 The print one at a time feature in Cura needs some configuration.  See the excerpt below from thingiverse.com with sample configuration.

You actually can!

Providing that none of your object is too tall (taller than the Gantry clearance).
Also the objects cannot be too close from each other (when you activate the option and move objects on the bed, you see a gray box around them showing this limit).

The reason you cannot use it at the moment is probably because you didn't filled the printer head size parameters (Menu "Machine -> Machine Settings...").
You will have to measure them, but on mine (Australian clone of the i3) I use those values and it works fine:

Head size toward X min: 30
Head size toward Y min: 70
Head size toward X max: 60
Head size toward Y max: 50
Printer gantry height: 35
Those are "conservative" values (a little bigger than the actual values). It means I'm losing a little bed space, but I prefer that to the risk of having the print head knocking out previous prints if one of the measurements is too low :o).

PS: The option will automatically disable itself if some object dimension are too big to avoid collisions
