Dual Extrusion Merge - Looks right xx Layers Wrong

Recommended Posts

-I have a model split in Rhino to 2 STL's

-Loaded in Cura - Dual Extrusion Merge - Looks perfect in the NORMAL view.

-but the LAYERS view looks wrong and I know it wont work.

Any insight about this would be appreciated.......

does each separate half need to be a closed object on its own??

This same model has printed successfully many time as a single extrusion...

thanks

That's a graphic issue in Cura. It's caused by the offset of the second extruder.

I had the same problem. I got rid of it by setting the offset of the second extruder in Marlin and to zero in Cura.

However, if you post a screenshot, we may be sure we mean the same issue... ;)
