  1. Obewan It looks like the file actually has the (. I have copied the file from Resources, Definitions. "machine_extruder_trains": { "0": "wanhao_d4s_extruder_0", "1": "wanhao_d4s_extruder_1" },
  2. Thanks guys, I will try both when I have a break from printing.
  3. Contacted Brad Fettes but he declined to help. I guess I will give up trying Cura.
  4. Thanks Greg, I will try leaving a message. No second extruder, that is a dead give-away that it has not worked.
  5. Thank you to the guys who have helped already. I believe I have altered the json files as per instructions but can immediately see the FFF is not configured correctly yet because as mentioned I still do not have two extruders showing. I add 3 json files which should be as instructed. I would be pleased if anyone who understands these can look at them for errors please. This is the link I followed to download the modified json files: https://github.com/fettesps/WanhaoDuplicator4S-Cura wanhao_d4s.def.json { "version": 2, "name": "Wanhao Duplicator 4S", "inherits
  6. Thanks to both of you. I have been following the details here:https://www.fettesps.com/adding-the-second-extruder-for-the-wanhao-duplicator-4s-in-cura-3-6-0/ This is the work Brad Fettes did to add a second extruder to, I assume the one added to the printers in Cura. I will see how that goes first.
  7. Greg Downloaded and opened in Cura. Of course as you do not have a Duplicator 4 it was not prepared with that printer and so there is no code added to save the file as X3g. I have opened the Gcode file and will look at it to see if it can be used in Cura for a Duplicator 4 printer.
  8. Thanks Greg, I will see what I can do with that.

  10. I have downloaded the file below and used to add a printer in Cura 4.8.0 and added the new files in Resources Definitions and Extruders. I noticed a message from Brad Fettes showing how to correct a typo and have corrected that. I removed Wanhao Duplicator 4s from printers and added it again after making the changes above. When I opened the printer up after this it still only showed one extruder, clearly the changes have not completed this correctly. I think the changes have changed the printer Gcode but it still remains idle when I try to print. I have included the fi
  11. I have downloaded and added new settings published by a different author for the printer. It adds new definitions for the printer and extruders. Unfortunately the author published a correction to a typo error and Windows 10 does all it can to prevent making changes to some files. I will try to contact the author Brad Fettes.
  12. Greg Others have found problems with this code and have question if it was even tested by the author. I have found another profile, for a dual extruder Duplicator 4 which I an going to shift my attention to. rebekah_harper posted it on this community site on Nov 16 2018. I have one issue to overcome yet, that is where/how to change the default to be 2 extruders. Plus I think in adding a new printer I need to activate it, but I'm not getting that option yet. I checked Cura Marketplace but there is not aolug-in for this printer.
  13. Thank you Greg, I have tried all of your suggestions without any progress. However I think I cleared my head and see why. If I edit the start code before slicing this is used, but of course there are instructions built in to the machine profile used in the slicer. None of the settings you refer to are in the start gcode so I can edit the Gcode file as sent to you but as Cura automatically converts this to x3g for my printer it is too late to make changes to the Gcode. I can look for the app which will convert the gcode to x3g and try using that file in the printer. It is a pity
  14. As usefully suggested I attach 2 files. Hope this helps someone determine my problem. Mirror support 11.8MM ball.3mf Mirror support 11.8MM ball.gcode
