  1. Hi there. I am struggling with tree supports since they don't respect the distance between the last layer branches and much parts are completely extruded in the air. Is there a way to correct it?
  2. What machine are you using? Maybe it will give hints to someone to help you more.
  3. Maybe you can take a look in the machine and extruder definition in the cura installation folder.
  4. Hi there. I noticed when using double extrusion on the edges there is a darker area. I think it shows you where the nozzle may run since there is the distance between each nozzles and it reduces the possible printing area. But it doesn't explain why each profile has a different dark area, what is the setting which controls it?

    Settings Based Periodic Under-Extrusion

    I have my own profile with a 0.16 basic line width and 0.20 initial layer line width. But it also happens on top layers so it isn't the problem. The layers are just HUGELY overextruded with cura 3.6

    Settings Based Periodic Under-Extrusion

    I noticed that exact over extrusion only in the top and bottom layers since only cura 3.6, while the perimeters are fine and even the flow is calibrated, since I precisely hit 0.40mm on a 0.4 nozzle. I couldn't print properly without the print failing because of the nozzle deeping in the print and hitting it. Downgrading to 3.5.0 solved this issue.. So yeah, something is faulty right there. So please, if some devs will drop into this topic, please consider taking a look.

    You're welcome.

    First benchy problem

    Increase the minimum layer time likely to 7 sconds, and reduce the retraction lenght and speed. I would recommend max 3mm and 45mm/s.

    Is the tree support 3mm distance ignored?

    I noticed using the stock profile it doesn't happen, but I don't get what setting is causing it in my own profile.
  10. Hi there. As you can see the tree support is solid and is most likely a shield. I set 3mm of distance between the tree tips but they're all joined. What's wrong?

    Uh, I have another question.. as I will use 2 different fans for each nozzle, what number do I need to use for fans in the machine profile? 0 and 1 or 1 and 2?

    Nice, it was that, thanks! Are other strings needed for the dual extruding tweaks (for PVA and PLA mostly) like for example the prime tower position or can I just specify them in the profile? I am also going to link this working cr-10 one to the cr-10s dual extruding. As I see the cr-10s machine definition is just a shortcut to the cr-10 with only a different name.

    Hi there, I did it and now the machine is recognized correctly and Cura doesn't report any error, but the second extruder still doesn't appear in Cura. These are the files in the extruder folder: creality_cr10_dual_extruder_0.def.json { "id": "creality_cr10_dual_extruder_0", "version": 2, "name": "Extruder 1", "inherits": "fdmextruder", "metadata": { "machine": "creality_cr10_dual", "position": "0" }, "overrides": { "extruder_nr": { "default_value": 0 }, "machine_nozzle_size": { "default_value": 0.4 }, "material_diameter": { "default_value": 1.75 } } } creality_cr10_dual_extruder_1.def.json { "id": "creality_cr10_dual_extruder_1", "version": 2, "name": "Extruder 2", "inherits": "fdmextruder", "metadata": { "machine": "creality_cr10_dual", "position": "1" }, "overrides": { "extruder_nr": { "default_value": 1 }, "machine_nozzle_size": { "default_value": 0.4 }, "material_diameter": { "default_value": 1.75 } } }

    I tried this along with the fixes @AbeFM mentioned, but when starting Cura it results the definition I made is corrupted and it doesn't show up. Any help?
