Hmmm...that's interesting. Can you please put your gcode somewhere and post a link to it? It it's not to disclose, you may send it to me in a PM.

What Cura version do you use and what type of machine have you defined within Cura? Do you have any dual extrusion option activated?

    M109 T1 S0? So the extruder 2 doesn't heat.... Did you set the temperature for extruder 2?

    Extruders don't work if their assigned head don't reach 170C unless you send a M302 to allow extrusion bellow 170C (it's for safety)

    Ah... that's the glitch with SelectExtruder Plugin. You first set the temperature (on the first extruder!) and THEN the plugin - which runs after slicing - selects the extruder.

    Well that gcode line it's weird

    It should be

    M104 S210 T1 ;set the heater 2 to 210

    M109 S210 T1 ;wait for the heater 2 to arrive 210

    but instead you have just M109 and set to 0 (edited), so it will 'just' wait for the heater to reach the temperature, but shouldn't set the temperature... so it will just wait and wait.. until the winter arrives XD

    Change that

    M109 T1 S0.000000

    to

    M104 T1 S210

    M109 T1 S210

    @neotko,

    do you mean I can slice without using the "Select-Extruder" plugin then edit Extruder1 to Extruder2 in gcode?

    Indeed. tinkergnome said it on the second reply. https://ultimaker.com/en/community/19329-cura-dual-extrusion-how-to-print-only-with-extruder-2-or-only-with-extruder-1?page=last#reply-133487

    Just make a normal single extruder gcode and add a T0 for extruder 1 or T1 for 2. Just incase check that the heat gcode points to t0 or t1 as needed.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
