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... ;)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
