Problems with Slicing with Dual Extruder


Recommended Posts

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?
