Posted · Problems with Slicing with Dual Extruder

So I wanted to try Dual Head printing today and wanted to slice it with Cura.

The part at the top is set for Extruder 1 (Blue) and the lower part for Extruder 2 (Yellow). Can anyone explain the jacket it slices with Extruder 1 and how to disable it?

And if I try to slice both with Extruder 2 it just slices them with Extruder 1 as seen in the following image. I defenitly selected Extruder 2 for both of them. It only uses the second nozzle if I select it in the manual control section. Any Solutions? Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
