  1. Thanks very much. Appreciate your help. I have downloaded & installed it but cannot find it.
  2. I am looking for a Ender 5 Profile with Dual Extrusion. I downloaded & installed the "Printer Settings Plugin" but could not find anything about it on my machine. It says installed when I click on the Marketplace button under Installed. Please advise what I am missing. Thanks.
  3. So I added another extruder to my Ender 5 Pro. I put together a skeleton Dual Extruder Profile from scratch but not happy at all with it. Someone here that can give me a hand in creating one? I also could not use any of my old Ender 5 Single Extruder profiles, and they worked almost perfect. Your suggestions and help will be most welcome. Thanks.
  4. Hi. I moved from 4.7.1 to 4.8 full, not Beta. I am missing the preview animation bar at the bottom. Do I need to check a box to see it? I can see the one on the right and it works perfect. Thanks.
  5. Thanks. I had to choose another printer which by default has 2 extruders. But, now it doesn't want to import my "old" profiles. I get the error s per attachment.
  6. Thanks again for the reply. Yes, did click the gear and checked all for the different settings. In my printer's (Ender 5 Pro) machine settings, it does not allow me to change the "Number of Extruders" from 1 to 2. It is a dropdown list and does not contain 2. I think I am stuck and need to choose another printer with 2 extruders ,,, hope not.
  7. I have a Creality Ender 5 Pro printer ... but added another extruder. In Cura 4.8.0 I cannot seem to add another extruder or choose from 1 in the drop down menu to 2. Do I have to choose another printer and if so, which one? TIA
  8. Is this the only place I tell Cura that I have 2 extruders? From what I have understood, it is possible to adjust the settings of the Prime Tower but I cannot find it. I only managed to find "Prime Tower Flow" but nothing more. (4.8.0 beta) I don't find these settings: https://support.ultimaker.com/hc/en-us/articles/360012518780-Dual-extrusion-settings
  9. Hello all and thank you so long for your help & advice. Cura 4.8 Beta I get my upgraded printer later today. Upgrades involves moving to a 2-in-1-out configuration. I have absolutely NO experience in printing with dual extruders. Can you please advise on what settings I need to change. I had a look at the printer settings and when I hover over "Number of Extruders", the pop-up says: "... An extruder train is the combination of a feeder, bowden tube, and nozzle". What makes me doubt if I should change the number of extruders from 1 to 2, is the fact that I only have 1 nozzle
  10. Thank you so much. You are 100% right. Thank you for the tip in Cura. I will have a look in MeshMixer.
  11. I need to print only part of something. I need to test a specific area for ghosting. It seems that it was possible with earlier version. I know that PrusaSlicer does an excellent job with the click of a button but I have Cura sort of dialed in for what I need to print and don't want to move to Prusa. I like Cura a lot. I installed the Mesh extension but when I want to split, it tells me that I cannot split it. I need to print only the upper part of the object. How do you split a part in Cura?
  12. I downloaded Cura 3.6 and could successfully import it there. It is 4.7 that says it has successfully imported it but doesn't list it under profiles.
  13. Thank you very much for a very thorough explanation. Really appreciate your help & time. I got it to work.
  14. Thank you very much. My reason for asking is that I cannot find 2 older Cura profiles I imported. When I want to import again, Cura says that it is already there and save them as name(1). But, I cannot find them when I look for them under "Profiles". Can it be that v4.x doesn't "read" v3.x?
  15. Hi. I downloaded the Ender test dog STL from Thingiverse. I printed the Gcode that came with my printer. Someone created a Curo profile with those settings and made it available online. I imported it but cannot find it with the rest of my profiles. When I import it again, it says that it already exists and make a second profile. Please advise, Dog_Profile.curaprofile
  16. Great. Thank you very much for your help.
  17. Hi and thanks for the help. Can someone please point me to some tutorials about this. I have read some blogs and watched videos and a "block" was mentioned in mostly all instances. How do I remove unwanted support. I cannot seem to find this block or how to draw it. I will really appreciate your help & advice. Thanks.
  18. Hi and thanks for the help. Ender 5 Pro with Duet 2 WiFi board, RepRap I am 4 weeks into 3D printing and have started off with Ultimaker Cura. As I made mistakes with settings, I have learned a lot. Someone advised that I need to learn more about Linear Advance. Can someone here please help me with some basic settings to start off with? I have installed the plugin but have noticed that there is no "help" in the "Settings guide". Thanks so long.
