  1. Hi, guys!

    I'd like to share my experience in double extrusion on Ultimaker 2. Maybe it will be useful.

    Ok. Several month ago i bought Ulticreatr 2X. I knew it was not good (according to some replies here), but desire to upgrade my printer and to make double coloured print prevailed. After it was delivered, I decided to postpone installation. Designers of the Ulticreatr 2X said that its feature didn't allow to use heated bed. So, i decided to study this problem first.

    I don't want to describe all my way to double extrusion. It was thorny. Besides heated bed issue, neither firmware nor Cura modifications, presented by Ulticreatr 2X designers worked.

    So, I searched decisions in the community. And I have found it.

    The first it was firmware. Tinkergnome, thank you very much for your work. It is extremely useful and works excellent!!!

    The second was slicer. I tried to modify Cura 2.3.1 as it was described by Ulticreatr team, but it was all for nothing. Then I tried to modify it according to this topics, but still without success!

    And then, thanks to Crema I tried Cura 15.04!

    Today I printed my first double colloured model!

    So, Ultimaker 2 + Ultikreatr 2X + Tinkergnome firmware + Cura 15.04 = Dual extrusion

    Thanks everyone!

    Sorry for my english, but i don't speak german at all:)

    I'd like to share my experience in double extrusion on Ultimaker 2. Maybe it will be useful. Sorry if all i will tell you about was already discussed in previous topics! I tried to translate all the thread it google translate, but it was useless. Translated text seldom had meaning for me (ok, google:P!).

  4. Hello, guys!

    I have bought Ultikreatr dual extrusion kit about four month ago. Yesterday I finally ventured to install it on my Ultimaker 2.

    It was hard, but solvable quest. Now it looks like 3d printer with double extrusion.

    Today I tried to improve Cura as it described here http://ulti.creatr.it/en/support/2x/slicing.html.

    I have done all steps, but it was all for nothing. Cura doesn't work.

    Did anyone have positive experience in changing Cura 2.3.1 for Ultikreatr dual extrusion kit?
