Problems with Slicing with Dual Extruder

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
